Water Girl

Some of you may remember Princess' battle with eczema that started when the Lizard King was leaving for Afghanistan. It has been a long and difficult road, but her skin has improved drastically with only mild flare-ups.

After more than 2 years of not swimming, the doctor gave her the green light to give it a try as long as she can rinse off well and apply moisturizer (we use an all natural homemade one made by my sister, the Duchess). At LIFE is Good, she spent an hour in the pool three days in a row and it went swimmingly (pun completely intended).

I know how much Princess loved her swim lessons, so I suggested she sign up again. She was all over it. She did start a level lower than where she left off, but the teacher already has her doing things from the next level. It seems it has all came back to her. Every week she counts the days to her next lesson. Yes, she is having a blast!

  4. How wonderful for her! I'm also astonished at how much she has grown over the past few months where I have been not around much in blog land!
