Two Strokes Forward, One Stroke Back

Julie demonstrated that she could swim the length of the deep end of the pool today, which meant it was time to go have a discussion with the lifeguards at the pool about allowing her to go down the drop slides and the platform dive. They agreed that she should be ready and she went down the slide with a good deal of gusto several times and then off the lower platform dive.

Things were fine until she went off the enclosed drop slide and became disoriented and tried to swim to the wrong ladder. This ultimately resulted in a lifeguard going in after her which meant the end of drop slides for today.

But she did really, really well otherwise. (And I've seen adults swim to the wrong slide too.)
