safe start

two weeks ago landon started safe start swimming. for those of you unfamiliar with safe start, it is survival swimming for children. the classes are only 10 minutes a day monday-friday for 6 weeks. it teaches them if they ever were to fall in a pool how to float and swim to the wall on their own. i was a bit hesitant at first to enroll him, i have heard horror stories where the child cries the entire time and ends up hating the water. landon loves the water. i didn't want to strike fear in him but in the end even if he "hated" the water he would still be able to save himself if he were ever to fall in a pool. which is key here in florida. the first day he was a little nervous, did a little whimpering but never a full blown cry. i think maybe he was more nervous about the stranger that was dunking him around the water more than the actual water. as the weeks have gone the whimper has faded and he now runs to the edge of the pool everyday. it amazes me how much he has learned in such a short period of time and can't wait to watch him learn more as the weeks progress!

  2. what a great class! It is smart to start them so young in learning these things. I am sure he will only love water more because of it.
