Swimming Lessons

Liliana just started swim lessons. She and a few other children meet on Monday nights at the local indoor swimming pool to learn how to float, blow bubbles, hold their breath, kick, and play with pool toys. Liliana is no stranger to water, having snorkeled in Hawaii at the age of one, and swum laps in Nana F's pool in Florida. She is a gutsy little girl who already thinks that she can swim (much to her parents dismay), so we decided that it was high time to get her lessons started, long before Summer arrives. We were very proud of her on her first day. She jumped right in and did everything the instructor asked without hesitation... unlike most of the boys in her class! Way to go girl!

Getting her feet wet and kicking in the water.
