Week two of swimming looked a lot like week one of swimming, with a lot of improvement, but also a lot of the same: kicking, floating, scooping, etc. I knew that what MiniM.E. really needed was some time to practice what she's been learning, but with swimming taking up our entire morning, and nap taking up most of our afternoon, there just hasn't been time to get to another pool to practice.
Fortunately, this past weekend we had TWO really great reasons to visit NH. One: lots of time for swimming practice. And more importantly, two: Auntie Jen and her boyfriend and son E. were going to be visiting at the same time.
The weather really didn't cooperate. It rained most of the time and the high for the weekend was 67. But Gram and Grumpy were nice enough to really heat up the pool for us so MiniM.E. was able to spend hours in the pool anyway.
She really did just need some practice because after just the first evening of swimming, she was jumping off the diving board and swimming to the ladder all by herself.
And by the end of the weekend she could almost swim from one end of the pool to the other!
LittleL.G. forgot she was only one and a half and didn't want to be left out, so she did a lot of jumping too!
She was also really excited to see Auntie Jen and spend some time with E. They had a great time swimming and playing together.
