Learning to Swim

Since we have a pool, we have been swimming quite a bit, which has been good for the girls because they have been learning to swim. Ava was first. She can float by herself (with the water wings). She can spin herself around, she can lay on her back, and she can kick to get where she needs to go. I think it is so cute that they are so little and can motor around like they do.

Avery was a little more timid about swimming. She can jump into the pool to us with no fear, but once in the pool she wouldn't let us let go. Then one day, she gave it a shot and is now a pro. She does have trouble keeping her mouth shut and doesn't like to be on her own for long. Hopefully swimming is like riding a bike and we won't have to re-teach them next year!
