June 21, 2012 - Swimming Lessons


It is Ella's second week of swim class.


She still goes back and forth between the instructors.


Heads-down. Good form.


The teacher is strict, but still gentle in how she helps Ella swim correctly.


Reach for that wall!


Reach...


Another little boy has a lesson at the same time.


They race!


Over and over.



Ella practices with a board on her legs to help her learn to kick.


Finally, it is time to swim to the stairs.


That means it is over.


She's happy, though


...and thirsty...
