They Call Her Flipper

Maggie had a great first week of swim lessons. Tuesday of this week, however, was a bit of a struggle. She loved playing in and splashing the water but hated being forced to go under. There were intermittent cries and by the end of the lesson that day she was over it. Thursday, on the other hand, was a different story. My parents came to watch (and cheer her on) and she did really well. She waved and smiled at my dad between each swim and seemed to enjoy herself again. In fact, she wore flippers for the whole lesson! (Not everyone in the class has graduated to wearing flippers yet so let me brag a little, OK?) Next week she tries out the snorkel and soon after that we're looking forward to a class field-trip to the Great Barrier Reef.

Can I come too?! We'd also like to come to the Olympics when Mags is there competing for the gold in swimming.
