Taking the Plunge

Today we said farewell to swimming lessons. It was the last day of class, in the last session of the summer. During the last day of class all the kids from every level get a chance to jump off the diving board. Do you think Tom and Abby made the leap??

Heck no! In some cases the little ones were carried to the edge of the diving board and jumped in with the instructor. Tom and Abby didn't even get that far. There was some squealing, some kicking and definitely some yelling, "Noooooo! It's TOO deep!" Abby repeated over and over.

I honestly think Tom might have jumped, had Abby not been so adamant about staying so far away from the action.

Hannah's swim class did that on the last day of class too. At first Hannah said no but then she saw the other kids in the class do it and so she of course decided she would do it too. Ahh...peer pressure.
