My kids have always loved pools but a little squeemish when it comes to actually "swimming". During the last 2 summers, we've been able to visit our friends neighborhood pool but not too often so really they've never had too many chances to swim or learn how to swim.
But we've used our complex pool several times since we've moved in and it's amazing how all the sudden Reese has improved!!! After just a couple times of really swimming (without his feet walking on the bottom of the pool), today he swam from one end to the other without stopping. He was so proud of himself and I am so proud of him. He just kept trying and after several frustrating attemps, he accomplished his goal!
Good job Reese! Next week, on to swimming in the 4 feet!
