Fully dressed in a long sleeved shirt, a hoodie, jeans, socks, sneakers, and a regular diaper (not a swim diaper), Nancy pushes Baylee to excel. The test is harder than anything Baylee will ever endure in real lfe, but she has to make sure she's ready to make it on her own. I think she looks pretty darn good myself!! (not being biased of course!)
Thanks Nancy for everything!! You have definitely given me peace of mind with the skills you have taught my daughter.

Baylee passed her summer clothes test!!! When the instructor feels the child is ready to test (it's usually during the 6th week), they come to their lesson dressed in summer clothes and sandals. And this is what they test in. The reason being that if a child falls into a pool, they're most likely not going to have a swim suit on--they're going to be fully dressed. (The 2nd part of her testing involves a winter clothes test--long sleeved shirt, jeans and sneakers.) There are 7 different video clips from her entire lesson (about 15 minutes worth). Nancy, the instructor, tells us what she's doing with the child and why. It's pretty fascinating how Baylee handles it all...cool and collected. She does really well.
P.S. She cried when we took her out of the pool cause her lesson was over!

The girl on the far left kinda looks like me eh? It's my mom when she was a girl. I looked exactly like that when I was that same age. (her mom Fern, dad Larry and brother Greg) Cutest parents ever. I miss you so much mom...

Crazy and wild!!!
We put her in these clothes originally to keep her covered and out of the sun and water, but to no avail. She wasn't having any of that. Needless to say I didn't put a swim diaper on her and if you're a mother you probably know that regular diapers can hold a lot of "stuff." In this case, lake water! (I'm glad that's all it was!!!)
