Swimming lessons were survived this summer, we had great, and I mean GREAT instructors, the one in particular that actually got Zachary IN the water is my new hero at the moment. After a year of forcing him to come and watching him sit on the shore, then the year of him not even going, it was so great to have a year where he learned how to swim!! There is more to learn, of course, neither he nor Michael passed their level, but that was not really a surprise, at these levels it takes more than a few weeks of summer to master the skills.
