Learning to swim

All smiles after swim lessons, originally uploaded by MCuthbert.

Emily and Kendall began swim lessons today at the Wald Park pool in Vestavia Hills.

Kendall has always been a fan of the water -- to the point of being oblivious to danger. She'll sink under the water, and we'll have to pull her up coughing and sputtering, but she'll gladly go right back for more of the same.

Emily, on the other hand, hates getting in the pool -- even with a float. She doesn't want to do anything more than sit on the steps. If we approach her, she darts to safety at a deck chair, afraid that we'll pull her out into the water.

So it was a big relief that Emily loved her first swim lesson.

Kendall did too -- you just can't tell from the picture because she was mad that it was over.
