Still a Penguin
Swim class 2010. I haven't yet graduated to being an otter, but at least I'm not still a goldfish, right???
I had great improvements this session though. I can dunk my head all the way in the water and I can almost float on my back without the helpful hand of my very lovely swim instructors. I think I can probably do it on my own, I just love those lovely helping hands on me, woo woo! Megan and Molly, woo woo!
This is my back floating heavy concentration face.
Also used when I am doing my back floating big kicks. On my report card, they said I was a great listener, I worked very hard, and I had the biggest kicks in class!
My best pal Stuart had class after me (he's almost a polar bear!), so he comes early so he can watch over me at the side of the pool and cheer me on.
I'm saving up for a life vest which does all the floating for me, but I will continue to learn and practice my swim stuff. Next time you see me I'll be slipping and sliding through the water like a real live otter.
