My sister sent me this incredibly sweet (and no, I am not biased ;)) picture of my little niece Greta yesterday. I love it so much that I HAD to share it with you!
It makes me sad that I couldn’t be there with her when she took her first swimming lesson.
Doesn’t she look totally comfortable?
She seems to be so content with herself in her little red lifesaver ring (and it seems to taste pretty good, too ;))
Well yeah, and Daddy is right behind her. Which little girl wouldn’t feel safe with Daddy watching out for her?
My sister said she loves the water and didn’t cry once – which doesn’t surprise me, since her Mom received her “seahorse swimming badge” (Seepferdchen) when she was only 4 years old, whereas for her aunt, (ahm yes, that’s me!) it took a tiny bit longer ;)
To be honest, I’ve always hated swimming. I have always had somewhat of a fear of water and it has never completely gone away. I love the beach and I love being in the water, but I don’t like competitive swimming (had to do it in College for my P.E. degree) and I don’t like to not have solid ground below my feet. Period.
Maybe with a cute red lifesaver ring, I would ;)
