she swam without floaties

Celeste and I went for a swim and I decided that it’s time for her to learn swimming for real.

All these while, Celeste swims with arm floaties and she would be peddling proudly around the whole pool length with such gusto. And she thinks she can actually swim.

Until I told her to do so with the assistance of the floaties. But of course, I was just besides her, assisting her ever so gently, encouraging her to kick harder and to extend her hands and pull back on cue. And not to breathe through the nose.

On and off, of course she gulped water and choked but I guess, she needed to know the right way to do so. And to built her strenght level.
