Diving Diva

As many of you know, I am a bit obsessed with getting Chloe into summer programs and this summer is no exception.  We browsed through the city catalog and she got to pick what she wanted to do since Point Reyes camp was not an option this year.  One of things that she picked was diving and I feel that she made the right choice.  I personally think that she looks like a diver, bias?  Absolutely!

It was fun taking her to the pool and seeing her stretch out and get better as the day went on .  Following is a sequence of her best jump.

This is the warm up with the rest of her classmates.

Getting ready for jump.

Wait for it....

Wait for it.....

Getting some air.....

Taking the leap.

Sorry but even with it being on continuous sports mode I didn't hold the button long enough to get the actual dive.  It was a cross between a belly flop and a dive.  Having said that, she did great for it being her very first time doing this.  She's really excited about getting better and taking her lumps (belly flops hurt) as she goes along.
