Swim Lessons

 Alexa started swim lessons for the summer.  She is at a swim school near us and in a group class of 4.  Previously she has taken private lessons here at the house but even though she learned some skills, she has not been swimming independently.  This session is only 8 classes ( 2x week) but she has really learned a lot.  She is diving off the side of the pool and really enjoying it. 
 We really don't start swimming here at our house until late June because our pool is so cold which is hard to believe for AZ, but we live at a higher elevation and the water just does not warm up quickly.  Once it is warm, we swim about every day.  I'm more of a "floater" and love to get a tan ( yes, I wear sunscreen!) so we really do enjoy our pool days.  I hope that this is the summer that Alexa really becomes a fish in the water.  I even told her that I would get some goggles too and swim under water with her like mermaids.

Have always meant to ask if you have a pool at home. Alexa will definetly have come on leaps and bounds after 8 know how your girl always gives a new "thing" her all?
