And learning how to catwalk to the steps...

All started off well, until it was time to go underwater! Admittedly, mommy wasn't too thrilled about this part either. Emmy was more than unhappy; she was terrified. Her (very experienced) swim instructor convinced me that all of this is normal with new swimmers and kids don't like water in their ears, etc. (who does?) But all that ran through my mind is the Oprah episode about dry drownings... anxiety much?!

Even though the girls were not so thrilled with their first immersion class, we're hoping next week will be a little easier.
To top off the weekend, we did some wall hangings in anticipation of the many items Emmy will be bringing home from preschool. Yep, 1/2 day, 5 days a week preschool starts next week! To get Emmy in the spirit, we prepared a wall in her playroom so she could show off her goods.
