The girls have been going to swim lessons this summer. We actually had some last year, but I don't think either of them remembered much. So we called as soon as the pool opened and got some private lessons set up.
Arianna seemed to have remembered the most and she's been really trying and practicing. She even tries doing windmills at home to practice what her arms are supposed to be doing. Now she can almost float on her back by herself, she just has issues with arching so she "sinks" a bit.
I am so thankful for the membership. I've been there twice already and I LOVE it. The really cool thing ... there's been no more then 15 people at any time we went. That's AMAZING for a pool in a neighborhood. We went today and my husband was surprised at such a low showing. This is at the pool in the neighborhood where he grew up so he knows this pool well.
Are you spending time at a pool, taking lessons, going to the beach? I would love to hear any tips you have to help my girls not "flail" when coming up from under water and how to not be so stiff when trying to float.
