Livi's Swimming Lessons!!!!

So happy to report that Olivia is almost finished with swimming lessons. Don't get me wrong, we loved the lessons, but hated the drive. It was about 50 miles round trip for us. That is a lot for someone that hates driving. But having said all of that, check out my baby girl! The course we took is called Infant Swim Resource (google it - it's amazing) and basically they focus on survival versus strokes so that in the event that she ever accidentally fell in, she would have skills to save herself. So in order to complete the course you have to be able to perform these skills fully clothed. The video below shows her floating wearing, a swim diaper, a regular diaper, clothes, socks and tennis shoes.

Tomorrow we have to have winter dress. I will try to get video tomorrow since it is our last day!

  1. I have heard of these lessons - very cool - it looks like she "gets it!" I bet you feel so much better having her around the pool now!
