Another summer milestone has passed....Swim lessons are over.
L did very well this year & can actually do a pretty good freestyle, she has really great form in the water. She was one step away from learning how to do her side breathing. They teach swim lessons all the way through elementary age...including all of the strokes.
Until she got to this point, it was a Mom decision. I guess next year, I will let her decide about taking them, but I hope she will decide to continue learning the different strokes.
J ended up at the stage where they practice rolling from prone to back & then back again. She passed her test where they throw them about 6 ft out into the pool & she has to turn around & get to the side. She will be taking swim lessons again next year....=)
In our pool (well, it is actually at Grandpa & Grandma's house), she is still more comfortable "All Decked Out".....that way she can get around the water without any adult help. Doing it all by herself....her daily 3 yr old motto.
