So this summer we found ourselves with a pool and four kids who couldn't swim a stroke.
Turns out we didn't need lessons after all. You throw them in enough times, and they figure it out. It helps that they can touch the bottom in every part of the pool- I don't think the twins would have been able to get out of their floaties alone otherwise.
In a matter of weeks they've gone from hating their faces splashed to swimming underwater across the pool. Now they're teaching themselves to float and kick and do arm strokes! They're no Olympians, but we were just shooting for not drowning. :)
|That's Bree under there! Even two weeks ago, I never would have believed it.|
|Same with Mia! Anya was in trouble, so she missed out this time around... but she's been doing the same.|
