Apparently, we really have a little fish for a daughter. This week, it was made official...Caroline is moving up to Level 2. I was hesitant to make this decision since in the next level she will not even be able to stand due to the deeper level of water and the fact that she will be swimming the length of the big pool. But, several things happened to make me very sure of my decision.
One, she is in Level 1, but the kids are not up to her level. I'm not being snotty about this but the majority of the other kids are SCREAMING, getting out of the pool to have snack which the parent is allowing, not even attempting to swim....must I go on? I called Tim on Tuesday to let him hear the chorus of crying and screaming coming from the pool. It was quite ridiculous!!
Two, Caroline is now 'teaching' her babies to swim at home. She 'plays swim' ALL THE TIME! As a matter of fact, Caroline wants to come home and immediately get back in the pool at home. She loves it! Today, she was the Champion Breath Holder for all three competitions and set the record for the day in that level. She held her breath for 26 seconds, 24 seconds, and 22 seconds. That's quite a challenge for a little tyke! She was so proud of herself. She came home and told Tim that she 'beat all the boys'.
I think I should probably check her for gills. What do you think?
