Our Little Mermaid

Guess who can swim?
Our little mermaid sprouted fins tonight!
Lorelei's always loved the water. She's just loved her water wings more. Something changed two nights ago, however, when we had our friends, the St. Peter family, over for dinner and a swim. When Lorelei saw Grace, also five, doing fancy, wingless tricks in the water, she mustered up some courage that we'd been trying to find all summer long. Two days later (tonight), during her first swim lesson with a neighbor girl named Maddy, Lorelei took the plunge! The movements aren't entirely graceful yet, and she tends to plug her nose and kick like crazy, but alas, Lorelei's getting around the pool! My heart's swimming for her.
