One of the many benefits of home schooling is a flexible schedule. The kids were able to start swimming lessons early, in hopes of getting a few skills under their belts before summer begins.
Thankfully, Miss B. is a terrific little swimmer. At least I don't have to worry that she's going to go under at any moment.... The Three Musketeers, on the other hand, are quite daring and bold. They are not hesitant at all to jump in the water and attempt to stay afloat. Ah... here in lies the danger! They all claimed to know how to swim because they have been in the bath tub. Sigh.
Looks like we'll be in a series of lessons this summer. I am so grateful that the kids absolutely loved the water. Now, if we could just develop a "healthy fear" of the water... then I might feel a little more comfortable.
