I already shared this on Facebook, but realized that I wanted to share here, too. This is something that I think is important for people to know, and in light of our pool activities and beach plans this week, thought it would be a good idea to share it here.
While we were at the pool, I tried to gauge each child’s swimming abilities. The older boys all did exceptionally well with treading water, and I was pleasantly surprised that Chris (who told me he’d never had swimming lessons) was doing a freestyle stroke, then switching fluidly to do a backstroke. I still need to get the twins in swimming lessons.
Anyways, hope you enjoy the article… it is well worth reading, no matter if you’re a water sprite or not. 😀
