Sydney has swimming lessons on wednesdays. She has had a new teacher these last couple of weeks that is very strict with her. She makes her do the things she needs to do whether she wants to or not. I think this will be very good for her and really help her learn to swim faster. It is a whole new world in the pool and not one she always likes! She also surprised me this week when out of the blue she said " my name is S-Y-D-N-E-Y". She actually spelled it out with no prompting from me. We have been working on letters and spelling her name but it just amazed me that she could do it on her own. She is such a smart girl!
