Swim Ranch

Stella and I have spent every morning this week out at the Swim Ranch. This girl loves the water! We learned how to get in and out of the pool, 1-2-3 SPLASH, how to float on our back, and how to kick (like dogpaddle). I actually think Stella is a better swimmer than me!! I am not a good swimmer at all. But there I was, in the pool with her! At this level, I can hang, but when it comes to jumping off of diving boards and swimming underwater, i'm out!! We are going to have to call in reinforcements. When Tay was about two they lived in Panama and his father, Al, was in the army. The guys he was training were too afraid to jump off of the high dive, so he called Tay's mom Kathy. She brought him up to the base, put his little water wings on him, and put him on the high dive. Tay jumped off and swam like a little fish! The guys were so embarrassed that a baby would do it but they wouldn't! Al got the guys off the high jump after that. So at least Stella has someone to learn from while I am in the shallow end!! xoxo

I love the story of Boy Tay. and the high dive...Stella will be that fearless too.

She doesn't flintch at the slides at PV, so why would she have a problem with the high dive!! She is amazing and we love to watch her grow and learn.

I hope your camera pops up so you can post more soon!!
