Awesome Little Swimmer!

K is doing fantastic with her swimming lessons. I thought those lessons were going to be the death of both of us. She fought me tooth and nail over them but Mama won and she has stuck with them for about 8 or 9 weeks so far! Today she swam the whole length of the pool twice, which is quite an accomplishment for a child who refused to even stay in the water a few weeks ago! I knew she could do it once she made up her mind. This child can accomplish amazing things if she has the desire. If she lacks the desire it is near impossible to get her to do it! She is my little blessing from God, the try-er of my patience, the cutie pattootee, my pride and joy and at times our greatest obstacle for household peace. I think I will keep her! (At least until tomorrow!)

See what a little perseverance can do?? (From mom as well as child, lol!)
How awesome! I'm having trouble keeping my guy in Taekwondo. He's tired of it but promised me he'll go to black belt (three belts away)
he wants to stop already though.

Sounds like she a great kid (I am impressed she is already swimming the whole length of the pool)--but it also sounds like you are a great mom--with all that patient encouraging!
