Katie Starr has been taking swimming lessons. They are really more of basic survivor skill lessons for beginners. Living in South Florida where there is water virtually everywhere there is a huge need to begin early training in the water. Katie began her lessons about 3 or 4 weeks ago and the first few lessons were torture. Thankfully the lessons are 10 minutes in length so the crying and screaming were over quite quickly (and that was me ~ just kidding~! We go three times a week and by the end of week two our Katie was transformed. She began to enjoy the lessons and now we can't get her shoes off fast enough once we get there...she loves it! I will spare you the video of lesson 2 as it is heart wrenching and I will skip to a more recent lesson where she is beginning to build confidence and make great strides. A good friend who is in my FCC Group told me about the lessons and her kiddos are in the time slots following Katie. The first video is our Katie and her friend Cady who wore the same bathing suit to our last lesson. They both looked disgusted at the thought of being caught in the same swimsuit ~Grin~ The following video is the highlight reel of one of her lessons.
