Swimming Lessons!

Getting ready to play "If You're Happy and You Know It"

Pointing to Daddy

As close to a smile as we got

Playing with the teacher, Jaime

Good floating!

Piggy backs and splash balls
Last summer our little monkey was such a fish!  She would get in the pool and splash and play until she was shivering, but get mad at us for making her get out.  So, this spring we went swimming with Grandma & Grandpa B and Kaity hated it!  The pool was cold, but that didn't seem to bother her before.  Finally, we decided to put monkey into some swimming lessons.  Every morning for 8 days we woke up and went to the Provo Rec center to go to our parent/tot swimming class!  By the end Kaity was a regular fish.  She kicks her legs, moves her arms, will put her head under the water without crying, splash, and she'll even jump in from the edge of the pool if Mom is there to catch her.  Here are the photos from the second to the last day.  Kaity wasn't very happy that Jared wasn't in the pool with us - she is definitely a Daddy's girl!

Such cute pictures! I can see her being upset about Jared not being in the pool with her, you should take her back to seven peaks soon! I am so impressed she will jump in and put her head under water, can't wait to see her skills when you come to Abq! I even bought new sunscreen since we have a pool at our new place=)
