Swimming lessons began for real this morning. To say that things were a little chaotic might be an understatement. I thought it was efficient to have the girls taking lessons at the same time, which may be true, but it's also a little overwhelming. We found out that Sophie still *loves* the water, though she has a little more respect for it than in the summer. Emily was initially pretty upset that we forgot her goggles, but by the end, she was remembering how much she enjoys the water (with the condition that it goes nowhere near her eyes).
