Ammon: June 8, 2012 Friday
Carter: June 8, 2012 Friday
Well, folks. We have a few differences from the summer of 2011 (https://havensideals.wordpress.com/2011/07/18/summer-fun-carter-ammon-swimming/)
1)No water wings
2)Jumping into 9ft of water instead of 3ft. of water
3)Doing some great dog-paddling with some “circle”/breast strokes and some “windmill” freestyle.
Our friend Marnie Rodgers said something to the effect of “It’s one less thing to worry about.”, meaning that Ammon and Carter have conquered a fear of the water, are learning to swim and dive responsibly, and we’ve given them a gift that cannot be taken away.
We will always be cautious and respectful of ANY body of water, but we will know we can float, try to have fun, and yet save ourselves if necessary.
Swimming is one of the most important things a child should learn to do, in my opinion. Yay for Carter and Ammon!
I agree 100%
I am so proud of them. Adam learned to swim at his daycare Kindercare and I was always so thankful for that because neither Bobby or I can swim. I often teased him who he would save first me or Dad. ha ha.
Glad you are having a great summer.
Keep us updated on your summer as well.
