She's moving on...

Saturday was a big day for Kylie. She has been taking swimming lessons at the YMCA since April. She was in the class that was for infants ages 6 mos to 3 years old. In this class the parent "swims" with the child. It is really a water familiarization class.

Since this coming Saturday will be the last week of the swimming class for the this session and the fact that Kylie is now too old to be in the same class Kylie's teacher and I were discussing what class to put her into. There are 2 different classes, they are both called Pikes. One of the Pikes classes is with the parent the other is without. We were trying to decide if we should enroll in the class with me or not. Both of us had decided that she really didn't seem ready to go without me so we enrolled her in the class with the parents. But then in a stroke of pure geniusness her teacher asked if maybe we could try the class without the parent. This was a great idea because Kylie is never ready to get out when her class is over and the Pike class without the parent is immediately after her class so we could just stay and see.

Well, I have to tell you it was a very proud moment for me. Kylie did absolutely wonderful, she didn't cry for Mommy and she did everything her teacher asked her to do. I was so happy for her.

So she's moved on...to the next level swimming class. The Pike's without parent class. This actually works out better since the class is on Saturday mornings instead on Tuesday evenings.
