Luna took a week long swimming class to wrap up the summer before school begins next week. Monday was really hard, filled with tears and anxiety. Tuesday was slightly better, but didn’t want to put on her swimming suit. Wednesday she told Michelle that she wasn’t afraid to put her head under the water anymore and that she will get in the pool without our assistance. Thursday she jumped into the pool with a huge smile on her face and was feeling very proud of herself. Today, she jumped in multiple times, can successfully swim to the edge of the pool and got to take a photo with Coach Conrad. He is the swimming whisperer! We will be back for more lessons to ensure Luna is a strong swimmer. As parents it’s so hard to see your kids cry and be clearly afraid of something, but each day it gets easier and then they feel this sense of pride and understand why mommy & daddy were so insistent on going to class.
