Took Hooty swimming yesterday. She used to be able to 'swim' with the aid of the tube and kick and float for awhile. But a few months back she sort of panicked and wasn't able to get her head out of the water for a few seconds. I think it gave her quite a scare.
Now, though she loves to just be in the water, she refuses to try to 'swim'. I am slowly trying to build her confidence. Yesterday I got her to float while I held her hand. Hopefully, she will forget her bad experience and start enjoying swimming as before.
