Swimming

Last week we had the opportunity to go swimming with Jon and Evie and to say the least it was an experience. Kaitlin has been swimming very few times and they have never gone particularly well. After a lot of coaxing she ended up having a lot of fun! Savannah on the other hand was not thrilled to be in the water and after a few minutes she was done in the water climbed into a pool chair and would not move. I had to pretty much force her just to sit on the step and she was not about to move.

Daddy took Kaitlin in the water and this is how she responded and trust me it was loud!

After they warmed up to the water Dave was able to convince Kaitlin to float on her back and not only did she realize she could do it but she enjoyed it.

This is where Savannah sat herself and she was not going to move! Every time I asked her if she wanted to go back in the water she would say "No NO NO"

We need to invest in a kick board Kaitlin thought they were great!

This was at the end of the day, as you can tell Kaitlin is no longer scared to be in the water. Jon's sister brought this floaty out and the girls LOVED it! It was a great way to end the day!
Thanks Jon, Evie and Jon's sister.
