Our boys have been having swimming lessons for a few seasons now and they have really paid off. So much so that when Eli recently fell into a swimming pool by accident he knew exactly what to do and saved himself. He actually emerged from the pool laughing. We weren't there at the time as he was at a friends house, needless to say our friend wasn't laughing!
Sadly this will be their last term of lessons but we're confident that they've both acquired a very necessary life skill. Joel has in fact gone well beyond that and is learning to do the front crawl. Dad is particularly pleased with them as he didn't learn until he was 15 and doesn't really enjoy it to this day. Thankfully the boys are the complete opposite and really enjoy swimming and with summer almost here we'll be spending more time at friends houses where they've got pools.
