Laps and flops

Reid’s swimming teacher is doing a great job challenging her tonight. Reid swam the length of the pool on her back unassisted and then swam back, with some help to breathe, on her front.

The teacher demonstrated the proper way to dive from one knee and Reid came thisclose to executing but, in the end, did a slight, low-altitude belly flop. The teacher showed how to do a dive from standing and Reid did an impressive belly-flop. It had altitude, a great hang time and an amazing splash. The teacher said that she’d been worried about Reid’s tummy but Reid was proud with no thought of pain. I’m wondering if Reid will go to sleep early tonight with all of the exercise. It tends not to happen that way for us, though.
