elodie has been beelining it to the water every time we go to the ocean or a pool. i am so happy that she isn't afraid of the water and i want to keep it that way! we have taken some beginning swim classes at the rose bowl since she was five months old (doggy, kitty, doggy, kitty, zzzzzz) but it's really time to teach her how to swim. i remember chatting with a papa from vancouver last time we were out in palm springs -- his daughter was 3 and swimming circles around him. i can't remember what method he used... any suggestions?
