Swimming Lessons

This is McKenzie making a big splash down the water slide. She was scared to do it and mentioned before she went that she didn't want to do it. I assured her that they wouldn't go down the slide on the first day! I was wrong, but she now loves it. I am very proud of her. She went three times.
My Miranda girl "monkey'd" down the slide. Who knows how, but she didn't slide out. She monkey walked down to the bottom and stopped.
She refused to jump
The instructor had to pull her down. We asked her how she did it. She said that she kept her hands dry. That is my child. A little strong willed and if she doesn't want to do it, she'll find a way out. The next trip down the slide she got out of because she had to go to the bathroom. Mom wasn't going to go for that when she paid good money for lessons. Miranda had to go again and this time the instructor "helped" (pushed) her down so she couldn't stop herself. She didn't seem too traumatized by it all. I think she will be used to it in no time!
