Here Fishy Fishy

OK, so she may not swim like a fishy just yet, but Madeline is a water girl for sure! We started swimming lessons last week and the only time she fusses is when we have to get *out* of the pool. :-) These lessons are supposed to teach her how to kick on her belly and her back (with me holding her, of course), stick her face in the water and blow bubbles, hold on to the side, and basic water safety. We paid $40 for 8 lessons and the first week the instructor didn't even show up, then a new lady "taught" on Thursday and all she did in 30 minutes was lead us in a song and practice kicks twice. Oh well! I'll just chalk it up to money well spent on pool-time fun for Maddie and me!

Yes, Maddie, this is your 1st swimming lesson! :-)

practicing kicking our feet (and apparently flying like an airplane, too!)

Maddie loved twirling in circles and always made a cute "woooooo" sound.


This is so much fun, Mom! Let's do this all the time! :-)
What a cutie pie girl.
