The essence of summer
The first day, they were nervous. And the boys still get nervous about going in the deep end, but they can do it. Now, they are starting to "dive" off the board.
Hannah is so cute. When it comes time for them to jump in off the side of the pool and her instructor asks who wants to go next, she stands in line with her hand up. She'll take her turn, return to the line, and shoot her arm in the air until he lets her go again. She doesn't just put her arm up in the air. She holds it as high as she can and wiggles her fingers in anticipation. She grins and gives her instructor the biggest hugs.
It's been two weeks of wonderful progress. I am so proud of each of them.
