So proud....

I know I said I wouldn't post video till the end, but I am just so proud of how Kelsey is doing with her swim lessons after just 2 weeks. She still cries through the entire 15 minutes I just praise her and clap for her and tell her how good she is doing. In my mind...crying is much better than drowning. WARNING!!! If you don't want to (or can't bear to) hear her cry, turn your volume off before watching the videos.

Kelsey floating all by herself

Here you can see her swim by herself and then the instructor helps her flip to breathe, flip back over to swim to the bar

This is the newest thing she's been working on. Kirsten puts her in/under the water vertically and then she has to learn to flip over so she can breathe.

This is Kelsey putting the swim and flip together on her own. She does the first flip totally on her own. After Kirsten flips her back t swim, you'll see Kelsey flip backover to breathe quickly. She's got the breathing thing down....we just need to get her to swim longer.

Meagan,
It took a bit to just tune out the crying(it was hard). I know if I was teaching her I would've given up at the first cry. Her instructor is great though and hen i took her in our pool this weekend, she did amazing and didn't really even cry. So cool!!
