Swim Lessons

Luke and Evie started swim lessons this week at TCU. All went well the first day. Evie and Luke quickly stripped down to their swim suits and joined the group. Very successful!

The next two days were disasters for Evie. She refused to even sit with the group or get in the pool. She has one more chance on Monday to get in the pool before she gets kicked out of the program. So, Evie's social anxiety rears its ugly head and the consequences are upon us. I'm not overly worried about it. I'll give her another year to get older, but we're still trying to convince her that swim lessons are fun and necessary. Anyone have any ideas? We've tried bribery, but it has little effect.

If you don't have to be there for her lesson, that might do the trick. If mommy isn't there then she can't make a big deal about it. Just my experience. Stay close but don't let her see you.

I'm not there because I'm at work, and Lindsey has to leave the pool area. She's still a stinker though and refuses to do what they tell her.
