Chloe's First Swim Lesson
My Friend Mindy started teaching swim lessons this summer, so we signed Chloe up and today was her first lesson and she did NOT like it! She did okay at first on the step but when they went into the deep water she freaked out. Mindy was so good she was very calm with her and sang cute swimming songs to her. She put Chloe in frontwards facing the pool and had her turn around and get to the wall and then pull herself out, (yeah it's a little scary for mom) but towards the end was doing it on her own and I was so proud of her. Chloe's voice was horse towards the end from screaming "mommy, mommy" but they looked for cute pool toys on the big step and Chloe seemed to like that. I'm so glad we're doing this so that she can feel more comfortable in the water and not cry so much. I'll update at the end of the 2 weeks and let you know how she does.
