Sasha was so excited to show me that she could spin in the water without plugging her nose.
This is a huge step, at least not plugging your nose while in the water, to progress in swimming.
Sasha loves swimming on her back, she is doing much better in this video, at first she would kick herself to the bottom of the pool instead of across the pool. Unfortunately swimming on her back keeps her wanting to plug her nose. She LOVES it though!
This is her first time treading water all by herself!
Way to go Squash!
We are so happy that you are loving swimming so much, and for how hard you are trying to learn as much as you can. You are doing a great job!
Braden is doing a great job with his swimming as well, he is finally getting over his fear of putting his face in the water! (Today at the pool we couldn't keep his face out of the water :))
He was so excited to show us that he could hold his breath for 11 seconds out of the water, and then he made it 7 seconds with his face in. It is so exciting watching him conquer his fear.
I missed the life jacket swim around the pool (on camera that is), he was going so fast I was sure that Trent was pulling him through the water. I found out after the class that Braden was doing it all himself, and Trent was having a hard time staying out of his way, Braden made it all the way around the pool in 45 seconds. He is so coordinated that when he decides that he is ready it will come really quickly. Great job Buddy!
We have to thank Trent Porter, her teacher, Sasha and Braden love working with you!
