Last week Alexa finished her second round of Preschool Swimming Lessons. Before that we had always been in the Mom and Tot ones where one of us is in the water with her. Not this time, now that she was 3 she got to go solo and boy was she excited. I'm pretty sure she loves us but I think sometimes it's just hard to tell because she is such an independent little girl. :)
Anyway within two days of the first session she was transformed. All she wanted to do was get under the water. There was a couple times her teacher had to kindly ask her to stay on the side of the pool when she was waiting for her turn to do something. Yeah, she wasn't having that. So I think they must have compromised because she got to be in the water but had to be touching the side. (I'm so glad to see we aren't the only ones who gets conned by her!) :)
At the end of this past 3 week session her teacher said she was ready to move to the next level! She was able to do back and front floats, swim using her arms and swim under water. I couldn't believe she was doing all that in just a few weeks! I told her she was my little fishy and she said, "No Mommy, I am a Mermaid!"
So now onto the next level, Preschool 2. Hopefully she doesn't learn so quick this time because you have to be 5 to be in swim school (which would be the next level) and that's still a year and a half away. Seriously, this girl is a little fish...every day she asks if we can go swimming. I love that.
Here she is with her Best Friend who took the class with her. They had so much fun together and surprisingly didn't get into much trouble! They are both talkers, you would think they were teenagers when they get together.
Here she is with one of her teachers. He was so good with the little kids and Alexa loved him.
That's my little Mermaid!
