here are a few shots from isa's swim class today. i was hoping they'd jump off the diving board, but we'll try again for those pics next time. as you can see, she loves being in the pool and is really proud of herself for how well she is learning to swim. we've actually noticed alot of improvements in just a few weeks-- she can hold her breath longer, float more comfortably and for longer periods, grab the ring on the pool bottom easier, etc. she is starting to be able to swim a few strokes on her own as well. she is insistent on doing lots of the exercises all by herself-- which probably drives her teacher crazy, as she will repeat it over and over again until the girl finally listens and lets go of her. she likes to show off some of her skills in the baby pool too and will go under, hold her breath, and swim a few strokes underwater before coming up for air!
