Dex has recently started swimming lessons. I can’t begin to tell you how important I think they are. My parents have a dam on their property. Tattoodaddy had gotten up early with Dex,they were playing outside. Tattoodaddy walked inside and poured himself a bowl of cereal, walked back out. In that time, Dex had ran down to the dam and was sitting beside it, throwing rocks in.
That could very easily have ended differently.
One of the big reasons we enrolled him in swimming lessons.
With Miss Kim, putting the treasures away
Learning to float on his back
swimming to the edge
Watching the other kids
Going to the “monkey monkey” bar
Dex swimming underwater
Singing the goodbye song
I love our pool. I am grateful that such wonderful people want to teach young kids how to swim. Personally, I think trying to control and be responsible for 4 2 year olds in a pool doesn’t sound fun at all. But Miss Kim is amazing. We just started with Lola too and Lucky for us, Kim is our teacher that day as well.
Do your kids have swimming lessons?
