Happy Valentines Day!

We are dressed in our Valentines outfits at the pool today! These two girls have stole the hearts of this family! We are so in love with them!

Sarah has been taking swimming lessons- 4 private lessons. Her progress was slow. She seemed very rigid in the water and was fearful at times. I was beginning to feel like maybe we should stop, give her more time and try again later. Then in the last lesson she began to make progress! Today she was swimming with us and she did fantastic! No floating devices at all! She spent more time under the water than on top-by choice that is! She was so much more relaxed and ventured over her head while holding on to the side! She went under and picked up goggles off the floor on the pool. She is practicing her kick and can do the back float with a spotter. I cannot believe how well she is doing in the water! Anna on the other hand- jumped in without her water wings and went straight to the bottom. Jim grabbed her- she came up with a smile- she is a fish. Well, a fish that doesn't know she can't swim, that is! We got those water wings on quickly!
