On a happier note (sorry for that debbie downer post- just being real)... I had such a great time while visiting Utah this summer. Swimming lessons was at the top of our list, and Tate couldn't wait to resume her daily swimming routine.
I feel like a pro swim mom. It's all we do. I can pack a lunch, our swim bag, and be out the door in 5 minutes flat. It's quite amazing.
This session Tate perfected her "torpedo" swimming. It was her favorite move, and it made me so proud of her!

Apparently they weren't heating the pool this summer... even the kids are feeling the recession:)

The BIG achievement that was left to the last day was the Diving Board!
"the look of hesitation"
"stay focused, stay focused"
the death grip... "ahhh, it's bouncy, it's bouncy"
Jumping in with the teacher isn't so bad though...
neither is being chucked off by my mom:)
Definitely a big highlight of our summer.
