Swim Lessons 2011

We have made a lot progress with swim lessons this summer.

Jake is now swimming both the forward and background crawl the entire length of the Olympic sized pool:

Jadyn is close to doing the backward crawl the required 10 yards to move up to the next level. She already mastered the forward crawl for that distance:

She also FINALLY jumped off the diving board all by herself into the 12 feet deep water with her life jacket (last session she had to be dropped in by her instructor):

Jake jumped off the diving board into the 12 feet deep water with NO life jacket and retrieved a dive stick at the bottom of the pool:

But despite everything they may have learned, they enjoyed being in the pool 4 days a week for 6 weeks of their summer and THAT is the most important thing of all. I am glad that even though swimming is not my thing, my kids are becoming little fish.
