Swimming Lessons

This week ENDED Maliyah's first swimming lessons. i kept meaning to get a picture of her on her first day, and then when it came I totally forgot! So at least I got some of her first session. The session was over three weeks and was 6 lessons. Maliyah although would have her nervous moments had a very brave attidute about it from the beginning. I think it was just because she was so excited to learn how to swim by herself she didn't care what that took. In fact at her second lesson she asked me to tell the teacher to let her go and swim on her own! She also jumped off the diving board on her very first lesson. By the end though it was her favorite part! This last lesson was mostly fun stuff so the kids got to wear these little floating devices around their middle. Maliyah thought that was pretty cool because then she was allowed to swim all over the pool on her own and even jump the board without the teacher near by. She LOVED every minute of it and even when she had scary moments, she would finish, sit on the sit and just grin! I was very proud of her determination to learn to swim. In fact she was the one that chose swimming over anything else first becuase she said that was so important to learn to swim! Way to go Maliyah!
