Brielle's Swimming Lessons

Brielle had her first real set of swimming lessons this summer. She did so well and wasn't afraid of the water at all!  I think private lessons are the way to go though.  Don't know if we will ever shell out the money to do so but it would be nice.  There were a couple of girls in her group who didn't listen very well. One was scared to death of everything and it took forever to get her to try something, therefore wasting everyone's time.  The other girl just didn't listen, she was in lala land half the time. Annoying to a very pregnant mom.

Brielle learned to put her face under water, she was hesitant at first but now that's all she wants to do...I have to tell her when she gets in our pool "Brielle stop putting your face in the water" Her eyes get red and she ends up drinking way to much pool water.  

I captured the sweetest moment! I guess her little friend here was afraid to jump in so Brielle turned to her put her hands on her face and said "Don't Worry! Don't be scared, Jesus is with you", my heart just exploded!

At one point they headed over to the deep pool and jumped off the edge to swim to their teacher.  I was videoing it.  Brielle went under water, seemed like forever to me and I freaked out (internally of course, I didn't want her to know I was scared for her life)  When I watched the video back to show Landon how our kid almost drowned she was literally under water for 2 seconds lol! It felt like a minute while I was standing there watching it.   

The lessons were only two weeks long.  We missed the last class however because we were busy having a baby : ) They were probably glad the grumpy pregnant lady wasn't there to complain about not having enough chairs in the shade and to turn their loud music down....I may have been a bit of a diva those two weeks.

Now that lessons are over, B has been practicing a lot in our pool with Landon and she's obsessed.  She gets better and better with every try.  


  1. Just had a baby girl 8/12, and have been following your blog awhile. My 3 year old (4 in Sept.) had lessons at Emler Swim School in Allen this summer. Smaller classes, great teachers!

    It's indoor and year round. I know they have a location in Frisco too. You might want to check it out.

    1. Thanks Laura!!! I'll check it out!
