Yesterday, my dh and I took dd(2) swimming for the first time.

 I expected her to be a little cautious, but(holding my hand)she followed me right into the water....She splashed,and played (I was holding her either around the waist or by the arms the whole time) and absolutely loved it...She even wanted to jump in(holding my hands) over and over again.

 I was so proud of her. She did great, and had a fantastic time.

The plan is to go twice a week. I am also signing her up for swim lessons in July.(The June ones are already full.)

Honestly, this was the first time I have been swimming in about 10 years.  It felt so good for ME to get in that pool too.

 We just got a membership at the *Y*. We are taking FULL advantage of it this summer.

That's awesome!  What fun!  We taught our kids to blow bubbles under water when they were toddlers (in the bathtub.)  That's where they started learning the concept of holding breath under water.  We stole the concept from the YMCA at one of their swimming lessons.

LOL :)

 Something about that water.....

It was funny. She didn't really throw a fit when it was time to leave...just said she didn't want to get out of the "big bathtub".

It's pretty easy to forget how much fun it is if you don't go for a while, lol.
