Sophie the Little Mermaid

September 22, 2008

Now that I’ve got some free time on my hands, we decided to sign Sophie up for swimming lessons.  (Although at this age it’s more like dunking lessons.  We go every Tuesday afternoon to the pool in the rehab center at a local hospital.  They keep the water at about 90+ degrees, so it’s not exactly refreshing.  But they teach the kids how to float on their backs, how to kick and swim, and how to crawl out of the pool if the fall in.  And of course sing lots of songs.

Here’s Sophie getting ready for class:

Here is where we practice “falling” into the pool and getting back out:

And here is a picture showing how we float.  She can actually float pretty good, I only have to support the back of her head:

Of course, there is plenty of time to be social:

After working up a big appetite, we went over to Fuddruckers for lunch:

I wanted to say thanks to Elizabeth for taking most of these pictures (since I was in the pool!)  Thanks, friend!
