18/100: My little fish

My little fish. Today was L's last swim lesson of the summer. She was able to build on the skills she had already learned, picked up new ones, and best of all- she renewed her love of swimming!


This was the third summer L has taken lessons with this teacher, and as always, I'm so impressed with him and his teaching methods. Now that she is comfortable swimming under water, he has been working with her on learning how to come up for air, as well as introducing her to new strokes, such as the freestyle and backstroke, as well as diving. And through it all, L has thoroughly enjoyed every minute. She eager and willing to try every new skill her coach wanted to introduce to her. I'm so proud of how far she's come and how brave and open to learning she's been. She also really connected with her coach this time around, and he with her. Swim success!
