Considering that Maeve wouldn't even put her face in the water in April and left her first swim lesson that month in tears, I think she's made great progress in a short time. Yes, I know I'm biased. But she's jumping in the deep end and swimming with her face in the water. When she comes up sputtering, having swallowed water, she catches her breath and goes right back under the water. She's a very determined little girl and she amazes me all the time!
