Water Girl

It has been a long time since Vera had gone into the pool at school. 

Hydrotherapy is once a week, but due her many bouts of illnesses, we have had to stay away from school. 

Yesterday was the second time this year. 

And boy, was she happy to be in the water again. 

Besides the regular duck pedaling that she does, she's now added in vigorous upper body movements. Just this simple improvement brings me such joy. 

In the water, she comes alive, free of the weight of her limbs.

If Vera could tell us, what would she wish for? I'd reckon to swim every day, to be in her element.
