Mariah learning to swim

So, it has been a while since we posted an update and I just wanted to show a video of Mariah's swimming skills. She has been taking swimming lessons since August and is doing really well!!! She is learning to do "polar bears" now, which is basically what we use to call "dog paddling." She is doing a better job of swimming almost independently with just a little support from her instructor Tracy. It is amazing what they can learn at such young ages and she just loves it. So, we are in the dilemma now of trying to decide whether or not to renew for another 12 sessions. She has 3 left and of course, all of the progress is seen toward the end of the sessions which makes you want to renew and do more since she will progress even more :) She also just learned to slide along the side of the pool wall during this session, which is a safety skill to help the kids get to the steps so they can get out if they fall in the pool.

Check it out and see for yourself.
