Merek Swim Test

Warning: This may be hard to watch.

Just a little background information...I enrolled the kids in an infant lifesaving swim program, where they teach them basic life saving skills. They start with teaching them to swim face first in the water to the wall and pull them selves out of the water. THen they teach them to float on their backs. And then they teach them to swim and then rotate to their backs to breathe and then to rotate back to their front to continue swimming. The final test is to show that they can save themselves if they fall in the water.

Today I watched my 15 month old swim from one end of the pool to the other end without anyone touching him. Truely Amazing.

Swim Lessons

All the boys are swimming this summer. Corbin is on the Parrish Health and Fitness Swim Team, and the other three are taking private lessons from Lisa Espy. She has done an amazing job. Tyler is not finished with his lessons and is working on learning stroke. Rylan loves to swim with the snorkel, but is still unsure of the back float. Merek had his second lesson today. He is so sweet. He doesn't scream or fuss. He already floats on his back and swims a little. He teacher is amazed at how quickly he is picking it up.

Note: I have videos but I can't figure out why they aren't uploading. Will work on it another time.
