Water Fairy!

Ellie gets to go swimming twice a week at her school. These pictures are of the first time that she has ever been in a float - at all - without being held. Teacher was never far away but it looks like Ellie really loved the freedom of being on her own in the water. I think she looks like a ballet dancer in the first one! Ellie's teacher Kristin sends home pictures of Ellie's day on a regular basis which is yet another sign of excellence and nothing to hide and just what I need as a mom. I miss Ellie when she goes to school but who can argue with her having experiences like this. There is no way I could duplicate the variety of fun she has or the learning she gets. It's truly amazing. My little Water Fairy!

She looks so wonderful. I can't wait to get Charlie in the pool this summer. I suspect he's going to love it.

Love the pictures! And I especially love the "this girl's got attitude and loves life" look Ellie's got going on in the first photo. Love, Emma

She really IS a water fairy!! That is amazing. I can remember when you were afraid she wouldn't even get in the water without you or her daddy, and now look at her!! If that isn't progress then I don't know what is!

I love that float, do you know where the school got it? I would LOVE to have one for my daughter Brooklyn. She has out grown all the the "baby" floating devices.
