Something interesting happened on Wednesday at our weekly swim lesson at Goldfish Swim School.
We were running late, per usual. We arrived 5 minutes before class started. I rushed to the changing area with all 3 kids in tow. I helped Luke and Eden change into their suits right before class was starting. When the announcement was made to enter the pool, they walked over to their instructors and hopped into their separate lanes.
I sat behind the glass with Adam as I do every week and observed the kids working hard in their lesson.
As I’m sitting there watching lanes 2 and 5 while juggling a baby on my lap, I noticed something I haven’t really noticed before. Luke can swim. I mean, he can actually swim. I’m not talking doggy paddle or float on his back or tread water, but he can do windmill motion strokes and swim from the entire width of the pool with very little help.
Listen, I’m not a braggy mom by any means. My kids are just as normal as the next 5 and 3 year old children…but it’s an amazing feeling to watch your child swim for the first time ever.
It got me thinking about our 2018 goals when it comes to the water. This March will mark an entire year of weekly swim lessons at Goldfish. I understand this may not be for everyone…but if you’re even on the fence about swim lessons, I really encourage you to try Goldfish out. I am truly AMAZED at how far Luke and Eden both have come over the course of a year.
We are signed up for another entire year at the school, and I’m so excited to watch them learn, grow, move up in classes, build confidence and continue to learn life saving skills.
