Swim Class!

Isabelle started a parent-child swim class on June 14th at the WSU Student Rec Center. The classes are Monday and Wednesday nights and so far she is loving it!
However, her first class was a different story. The post about her hurting her poor lip happened about a half hour before her first swim class. So she was already a bit off and not acting herself due to the sore lip and nose.

She was not happy to be in the cold water to say the least.

She was more content splashing with her feet...
and hands...

blowing bubbles...

and playing with the balls...

from the edge of the pool.

Last week I joined her in the water and she has been loving it! She's already familiar with the water and loves to practice blowing bubbles and floating on her back in the bath tub, but we're still working on her being okay with putting her head under water. At last Monday's class she would put her chin in the water, then her cheek, then her nose... I think tonight she might be ready to put her whole face in! She loves to do "rocket ships" off the side of the pool and jumping into me from the edge. She'll finish up her classes just in time for the weather to warm up and time spent up at the lake!
