finally, finally, finally.....the boys are swimmers! it's been my fault that it has taken us this long to get these kids comfortable swimming. we tried a few times, we did some private lessons, but it always just seemed to be a drag. well, finally...we all had enough. the kids needed to learn to swim for safety reasons and finally, they were on board. fully. in a few short months, my kids went from barely comfortable enough to put their heads in the water....to full on JUMP action into the deep end. i've truly enjoyed watching this progression- and i'm always amazed by the ability of kids to just DO IT.
