Swimming Lessons

The first week of August Chloe started swimming lessons at Marlene's. She absolutely loved it and never would want to leave when the lesson was over. Since she just turned 3, Marlene gave her private lessons, so she got to have the pool all to herself! Marlene was SOOO good with Chloe and when she didn't want to go on her back she would make it fun and talk her into it. One of her favorite things to do during the lesson was to put the polly pocket girls into the boat and on the jet ski and then kick, kick, kick so they would float away. Then they would swim to bring them back. Another very fun thing they did was take turns leading the green light, red light game. One would call red or green light and the other would "reach and pull" swim towards her. When we started swim lessons Chloe would not go under the water and now she still doesn't really go under but she is more ok with it and even jumped in and went under a couple times during lessons. As long as you are holding her little hands she is good! We will test out her swimming skills this weekend as we are going to Leavenworth and will be swimming at the hotel pool lots I'm sure! As much as I loved doing the YMCA mommy and me swimming lessons with Chloe I don't think I will ever take her back there when Marlene does such a great job! Plus the most kids Marlene takes at one time is 2!! Same price, less kids, closer to home and much more fun - I think so!
