My older two kids recently took swim lessons. This was a first for them, but they were super excited about it.
My daughter takes to the water like a fish. She easily passed her level one class and wishes she could move on immediately to level two.
My son was a bit more reserved, hesitant and had to work up his courage to do some of what was expected. I think he drew strength from having his big sister in the same class.
We are blessed in our city to have numerous aquatic centers and pools that offer lessons. We're thankful!
