Savannah is taking swimming lessons and she couldn't be happier. For those of you that don't know that is my biggest fear her drowning. Why I do not know, I grew up on the lake and swimming from birth. I know it makes no since at all! I will and have put her on a horse since the day she was born! In the past we really haven't done much swimming, so I had just taught her a few things, not very well. This summer we found a girl that she really bonded with and she started taking lessons yesterday. Her next lesson is tomorrow. Kelly is great with her and already had her going under water and going into the deep end. After her lesson I got in the pool with her and we swam for awhile. Kelly is the daughter of my good friend that was hurt when the horse reared up with her. Savannah loves Ms. Kelly, so I say a big THANK YOU to Kelly!! Here are a few pictures from her first lesson.
Teaching her to use her feet! By the end of the lesson she had her swimming underneath the water to her! She is still holding her nose. We have been working on blowing bubbles in the bathtub!!
BTW-Update on her mom-she is doing well. Walking with crutches-has been in therapy and doing great. She is going to have surgery in a couple of months for a bone spur that is forming. When I talked with her yesterday she was saying she has some slight pain, but not much. They think after they shave off the bone spur that help with the pain. Thanks again for all your prayers.
