More grown-up-ness

Robin can also swim, by the way. Her swimming lessons will be ending with the school year, and they invited parents to attend this week.

She had a small floater on (a 6x6x2 inch square of floatiness on a strap around her middle) at first. They kickboarded from one end of the pool to the other:

Although they were sent out one at a time, Robin seemed to feel it was a race, and almost beat the kid who was 3/4 of the way there when she started.

Then they went without the boards, swimming. Then they went across the pool the short way (but at the deep end, which I suspect was about 4 or 5 feet deep):

When Robin got out I realized she no longer had the floater on. Finally, they got their medals:

So she swims too.

HOORAY for my swimming grandchild!

Could her non-swimming, water-avoiding grandfather's lessons and patience this summer have played any part? I LOVE to swim, but didn't seem to have the patience to help and encourage her as he did.
