Yesterday James and I took Val to homeschool group for family fitness day at the YMCA. They went swimming together, and Val just loved it. I am so thankful for that experience with her.
Val has never been in an indoor pool before even though she has swam in the many lakes around us and had a kiddie pool of her own, so this was a big deal. She seemed a little hesitant at first, but I think the fact that she knew all the adults and kids in the pool already it made it a lot easier on her. James swam, played, and challenged her a little bit and as I watched I was so proud of it all.
She fell asleep on the way home and slept like a rock! I think that was a sign that she was just as happy and fulfilled by the whole experience.
