:LIFE: Off the board...

This week was a big one for Kaitlin.

Last year, she didn't pass Level II swimming lessons and she was pretty disappointed in herself.

Over the winter, she sprouted up and that's made a huge difference. She suddenly become quite a little fish.

When I picked her up from Boys & Girls Club one day this week, she announced excitedly, "Mom, I passed the test!"

The test that she was referring to is the test that kids need to pass at our local pool in order to be able to go off the diving boards on the deep end of the pool which involves swimming the width of the pool without stopping or assistance.

To celebrate, we went swimming that very night because she was so excited to show me her new trick!

And, yes, she made it to the side and climbed out of the pool with a beaming smile!
