Elise has become a most excellent swimmer over the last year. When we were in Florida in April I let Elise go into the deep end for the first time, and for the first time I could finally relax because I realized that she really is strong enough to be there.
I feel like last summer she could barely tread water for more than a moment, and this year she is doing cannonballs right into the deep end at Gramma Teel’s and strengthening her handstand skills with every passing week.
I was a water baby myself, and my apple didn’t fall far from the tree. In this way, she’s just like me.
