Last day of swimming lessons

After the previous post of Avery putting her head underwater, she has been the stubborn girl that she is, and went back to not doing much at all. The last couple days of swimming have been full of frowns, no's, and crying.

Today was the last day. Her swim teach has been such a trooper with her. She was being very shy and crabby, and not doing much of anything. Towards the end, I told him, "take her out and go under." He told her that they were going to go under one more time.

Here she is holding on to him for dear life and saying "NO NO NO...can we PLEASE go back to the edge?"

We both told her, "Just one time, now hold your breath and count 1-2-3"
And, there ya have it! Photographic proof that Avery went under water! She didn't cry this time, and said it was "kind of scary" as to "really scary the first time".
Look at Matt's smile...when she got out, all the other kids and teachers were looking at her with big smiles!
Way to go Avery!!!

I just have to say, if he was my swim teacher I would do whatever he said. :-)
I'm glad she did it one more time even if it was "kinda scary".

Thank you for creating the button for us to put on our blogs to show that we're praying for Stellan and his family. That was such a good idea. I LOVE the layout of your blog. I am so not technologically savvy enough to do something like that with mine! How on Earth did you get your blog to be so cute?? And, your girls are adorable. If you have time, I would really love for you to tell me how you got your blog to look so cute. Thanks!
