Today we returned to the pool for another session. This was mainly for fun but also to prepare for an upcoming dock diving event, her first. I wanted to make sure Tessa is comfortable with the blue water (as opposed to the muddy pond water she is used to). Turns out she just loves any body of water!
To spice things up a bit I thought I'd add the diving board to the mix. At first she thought it was smarter and much easier to just back down and jump into the pool from the side - after all, the diving board is kind of high up and a very skinny and somewhat wobbly platform. But once I got on it myself and jumped off, she followed suit and we had no problem thereafter.
