Swimming is such an important skill for kids to learn. I want my kids to be comfortable in the water and able to handle themselves if they unexpectedly find themselves in deep water. So every year in the summer I make it a point to sign the boys up for swimming lessons.
Besides which, my boys absolutely LOVE it! We just started our second session of swimming lessons and I am so proud of my little fishies.
I love that my boys are not afraid to put their heads under water. In many ways they are better swimmers than their mommy is, which is fine by me. Maybe they inherited their swimming abilities from Honey Daddy, who was on the swim team in high school (my high school didn't even have a swim team!).
