Water baby (25/31) #1truething

I can’t swim. I don’t know how to.

M just finished a 20 day summer course and he went from playing in the kiddie pool to swimming freestyle across the length of the pool. I’m impressed at his fluidity, his fearlessness. I hope it is contagious.

  1. oh, if it *is* contagious, please send me some of that. I’ve started swimming lessons four times and given up – petrified of water 😦

  2. M has a former national swimming champ who now coaches kids and adults. She’s patient, gentle and doesn’t push students beyond what they are comfortable. That attitude has helped the kids for sure. I’m thinking of taking classes myself, if she reduces her rates.
