Our new little fish

After a few years of not being able to put any of the kids in summer group swim lessons, we decided it was time to invest in a few private lessons to help the girls become better swimmers, and for their improved safety when we are in or around water this summer. It was pretty amazing to see the progress little L made in just a few weeks. Before they started, she would hardly even get her face wet, and has progressed to being able to jump in and get back to the side, swim the width of the pool taking breaths, and swim to the bottom to retrieve something. She's definitely not a "strong" swimmer yet, but with some time in the pool, now has the tools to get there.

  1. i used to teach swimming lessons when i was in high school/college and my favorite moment was when a child got over their fear of the water... they'd take off like little birds from there! it is so cool to see!
