Ms. Tortellini's Swim Class

For the last two weeks Amber has been taking swim lessons at the base pool with Ms. Tortellini, yep that's right, Ms. Tortellini. Amber did really well and we had a lot of fun. Amber even started kicking her legs and blowing bubbles in the water. It was "parent taught" so I was with Amber in the pool and we got to play a lot of fun games that really just made her more comfortable in the water and taught her the basic motions of swimming. Some of the games fully submerged the kids underwater but it didn't faze her at all. We even went down the big water slide together!

Messy Girl

Believe it or not, she does manage to get SOME food in her mouth. A lot in fact-that is why she is getting so big.

The days have been HOT, well the humidity makes it feel HOT HOT HOT. So we (Amber) took a dip today. I thought the water might be too cold for her but she started playing and splashing right away. When I first put her on the grass she tried to put both legs in the air at the same time because she didn't like the feel of it. It was so funny because she couldn't keep her balance. I wasn't able to get a pic of that but it was hilarious.

Look at me, I can clap and swim at the same time.

The End!
