Little Mermaids

I had posted this earlier in the week, but I had technical problems with it; here's another try. I shot this video of the girls last weekend, after they had had five days of swimming lessons at camp. They are very proud of their progress! Natalia can swim underwater--until she needs to come up for air. Katya made it across the pool on her back! Natalia's custom-molded earplugs are working very well. Until their surgeries this winter (ear tubes for N, adenoidectomy/tonsilectomey for K), they always got sick after swimming; now they're doing well.

This is awesome! Smimming is the best kind of physical activity ever! And it's just so beautiful and graceful(as we can see from the video ;)))
