She was very stiff for the whole first lesson, one of the teachers let her hold a duck while she swam to try and relax her. I had to walk from side to side as she was swum back and forth to encourage her to keep holding onto the wall and not climb out. Of course, as soon as it was time to get out of the pool, she wanted more. That was Tuesday. Today, she was actually kicking her legs and couldn't wait for the part where she got to float on her back. She kept announcing to me that she was going to do it all by herself, and indeed, during one of the times where she was waiting for her turn again she completely let go of the wall and leaned back so she could float away. Twice. Fortunately, she did this on the side where I was sitting, so I could grab her and get her back to the wall.
I was considering signing her up for the next session too since she loves it so much, but I don't think I have twice weekly trips to the pool in me for that long.
