Summer Swim Lessons
By Lizzy and Colin Tahsuda
Eleanor participated in swim lessons this month at the Greensboro Aquatic Center. It was such a fun summer activity that was brand new to her! Being in the pool allowed her to explore how her body moves in water. She loved splashing, kicking her feet, and leaning back to feel the water on her hair. She seemed comfortable in the water from day 1!
She also enjoyed going under water! Before going under, we counted to 3 so she knew to close her eyes. It only took a couple of times before she knew exactly what to do. When we got to “2”, she smiled and got excited knowing she was about to go under. It was an unexpected way to teach her more about counting and numbers!
