Another Milestone

Sydney going off the diving board!
She has wanted to go off the diving board since she was two and a half but she had to pass a swimming test. 
The water in the diving area is 12 feet deep and no one can be under the board to catch their child. 
Her first time was on Saturday and it was after about 15 minutes of debating.  She even got to the end of the board at one point and decided not to jump.
So when she jumped everyone at the pool clapped and cheered.  Bill was ready to rescue her and of course there is a lifeguard stationed right by the board.  She did not need a rescue, she quickly swam to the ladder and was ready to go again!
Now all she wants to do is go off the board.  When the lifeguard sees she is getting tired they ask her to take a break. 
I took this video on Sunday when we went back for another day of swimming and jumping in off the high dive.
I wish I had had my camera to record her actual first jump, oh well.


  1. Wow! What a brave little girl she is.

  2. That's so cool! Our little ones love jumping off the diving board too. Cora scares the pants off me. I have to keep a constant eye on her. Thank goodness for floaties, because the girl has no fear!

    Love videos! It's neat to hear the voices of the people whose blogs we read. :)

    Have a great day!

  3. Great job! Love her little doggie paddle. We are going to have to meet up at the beach!!!!
