Madison had a great swimming lesson with Ryan tonight. She worked on walking up and down the ramp and pulling herself out of the pool by herself. An important skill they continue to work on is transitioning from a back float to an upright position to try and get her feet on the ground to hold onto the side. She is learning to tuck her chin into her chest and engaging her stomach muscles to pull herself upright in the water. Ryan uses a ball that Madison reaches forward for to try and pull herself forward. Her lesson ended with lots of laughs as she threw a ball many times at Ryans head.
