Well, tomorrow will be Silje's last day of her 2 week swimming lesson class. We signed her up with one of her little friends, and it turned out to just the 2 of them, and a 7 year old who very clearly was ready to be in the next level. So we were excited that she would get so much personal attention. She screamed in the water the first 3 days, and by the third day, the teacher let her sit on the side until she wanted to go in. Well, I didn't pay for her to sit on the side... so I went over to have a talk with Sile. I admit I stooped to bribery, and I told Silje that if she stayed in the water, and listened to the teacher, she could have an ice cream cone when we got home. Well, she hopped right in the water, and did pretty good. Her teacher recently told me that she knows what she needs, but is still really clingy and needs to be talked into everything, so she is recommending that she takes level 1 again next year. I'm thrilled she learned as much as she did.
