“Tomorrow’s Sunday? That means we have swim class tomorrow!” ~ My kids every Saturday, a couple of times during the day.
We are back taking lessons at Goldfish Swim School in Dayton and the girls are excited to go every time. I am happy that they each get more and more comfortable in the water each week and that the teachers work with each student at the ability and comfort level they are at. When I sit and watch classes, I do notice that every teacher in every class (there are at least 10 classes simultaneously throughout the pool) is adapting to each student they are working with. My kids love their swim instructors.
Kelsey has been showing some great improvement in going under water, breathing, and moving through the water. We’ve still got some work to do on form, but I’m happy she is working on being an effective swimmer. I was personally very happy to see her swimming backstroke for the first time since that and butterfly were my two main events when I swam in high school.
Aubrey is better about putting her face in the water and she will put her head back and float like it’s no ones business. Now that the biggest hurdle of not being afraid of water over her head is out of the way, I think we’ll start making more progress on her swimming ability soon. She’s also a master of the crab walk along the wall as well as getting herself out so take that Michael Phelps!
That’s really is he name of the game for me as far as having my kids in swim classes. While we do not own a pool nor do we live right next to a water source and I don’t intend on leaving them unsupervised near water, I want to have at least some piece of mind that if either girl ever ended up in the water somewhere by accident, they would be able to help themselves to a certain degree. Not being afraid of the water is a start, knowing they can float or swim backwards to keep their faces out of the water is better, and being able to get themselves to the edge and out of the water is best. It about water safety right now. #watersafety
