Little Mermaids

All summer long, The Littles have been taking swimming lessons from Miss Faith. Miss Faith, with almost 30 years of experience under her swimsuit belt, has been fantastic in helping the girls a) overcome their fear of the water, b) build trust with someone who is not related to them and c) learn to have FUN in the pool! They have come SO FAR in just a bit over a month. When we began Livie would just tremor the entire time. Now, our fearful soul is SMILING THE ENTIRE TIME! Both Livie and Sophie are well on their way to earning their "mermaid stripes"! :o)

They are doing sooooo good! It is amazing what a difference a few weeks makes in a new swimmer. Love the pics!

I'm so impressed! We have been working with the Tongginator, but it is slow going. She made tremendous progress this past month, however, so I refuse to complain.
