After another unsuccessful attempt at swimming lessons last winter at the W, I was lucky to find a private teacher able to get some lessons in at the municipal pool before it closed for the season. Emily has become so much braver and more comfortable in the water. By the end of four lessons, she had passed the equivalent of two levels and was doing multiple strokes. She also started going down the water slide. I was so proud! Lincoln also did well and passed another level. He is still very hesitant about getting his head wet or putting his face in the water, but he loves floating around in a ring in the big pool or splashing around the kiddie pool. I no longer feel like I have to hover over either of them. There are some videos from an afternoon at the pool in the August play list.
