Katie survived a week of swimming lessons. And I survived her reward, Chuck E. Cheese!
We went to a guy that has been recommended by family and friends that have gone to him over the years. He has a very tough love kind of approach... minus the love.
Would you drop your baby off to a guy with tattoos and a mohawk? I did. And he taught her how to swim!
Moms weren't allowed to stay, but I peeked through the fence. And we got to watch in person on the last day.
I was so proud of Katie. She had to be really brave all week.
All of our family members have pools and Katie almost drowned this winter. So I felt the need for her to really learn how to swim.
She finished her lessons over a week ago, and we have been swimming several times since. She swims under water and can even get rings on the bottom of the deep end!
Katie earned a trip to Chuck E. Cheese!
(Her Daddy's idea!)
She had so much fun!
On one game, she won 100 tickets! I felt like we should bring her to Vegas after that kind of luck!
It was fun to see the joy on her face:
Compared to the fearful face in the morning:
It was worth all the stress we BOTH endured all week!
Plus we got a bunch of
crap prizes with all our tickets at the Chuck E. Cheese store!
