Okay my daughter loves to dive. She started on the dive team this year which started mid october. Before that she took a class that was only 6 classes. She finally got to do a back dive for the first time last night. I got it on video. Before this they put a mat on the board, the kids lay down, and the instructor picks up the mat and dumps the kids in backwards into the pool. She was so excited!

She is only 8 soon to be 9 but looks like a kindergarner/possibly first grader. She said it was like doing a back bend into the water!

You are one proud Mama - congrats to you both. Big accomplishments. I was a diver when I was younger. You have to be fearless that's for sure! It's a fun sport and I hope she keeps up with it. Maybe one day we can all say we saw that Olympians first back dive!

I'm hoping she will too. You can never tell though. Her coach is great, if we can't make practice for whatever reason, its no big deal. no makeups, no reprimands. He just wants them to come and have fun. His hopes is that he will have them later on too. She has no fear of anything and has always been that way so that helps.

So you were a diver too, did you keep up with it?

Thanks ladies. I'm enjoying being the proud parent. :) It certainly is a different feeling.
