Really... we aren't trying to torture her. We are just trying to teach her how to swim! Aubrey completed her first swim lesson today and it definitely could have gone better. The lessons are four days a week for 6 weeks for about 10-15 minutes per lesson. I think her lesson today lasted about 7 minutes. Partly because it was so obviously the worst day she has ever experienced and partly because her first lesson came during an unexpected cold snap. Is it really fair that Aubrey's instructor is wearing a wet suit?? I felt so guilty because I can barely muster the strength to stick my big toe in water that's below 85 degrees. The fun part though is that we get to do it all over again tomorrow! I'm pretty sure Aubrey will lock herself in her room at the first sight of her bathing suit. The instructor ASSURES me that she'll be swimming be the end of the lessons... I'm thinking I should have requested a money-back guarantee.
