Layla has come a long way this year playing the water. She loves the pool and loves to splash in our little silly backyard blowup pool. So when I asked her if she wanted to take swimming lessons she let out a huge YESSSSS!!!! In fact she asked at the beginning of the summer if she could take them. I signed her up and yesterday we were out the door four our first lesson of 8.
Holy Moley. She hated it. She asked me if she could quit. She said she doesn't want to go back.
During the lesson she CRIED. Loudly.
Oh my word. Yesterday was a really bad day. Not just because of swimming lessons, but other things went wrong too. I messed up peach cobbler. How is that possible? Well it was so nasty...we ate the peaches out and threw the rest away. The whole reason I made cobbler was because I had a bad day and wanted something sweet and comforting. Well, so much for that. hA!
Today I am praying that she does better. I really think she will do great if she will just let herself. We have been very positive about these lessons and stressed how it is supposed to be fun.
Have your children had swimming lessons?
How did they do? Tell me your stories!!
