when i was an infant, my papa took me to swimmming lessons. he has such fond memories of it, and although i can not remember, it warms my heart to think about the special time just he and i shared. i wanted to contniue the tradition. when ava was about 9 months, my dad and larry a couple of times took her to swimming lessons. she loves the water and was ready for the next level, so this spring we took the plunge and registered at foss. i was a little skeptical at first of the cost, but i will say that in three lessons, we already got our money worth. her and my dad love it. she goes under water with no hesitation, and can't wait for wednesday nights. these pictures are not great, as they were mostly moving while the pictures were being taken.
