The girls started and finished swim refreshers last week. They LOVE the water, especially with Mrs. Carrie, their swim teacher. Sarah and Elanor both light up when they jump in to her. It only took them 6 lessons to be good to go for this next swim season. Sarah picked up her float the first day, and Elanor followed a few days later. It is so wonderful to know that if anything crazy, unexpected or horrible were to ever happen around water they can rescue themselves and call out until they are found. Flip off the back of a boat? They know how to recover and float and call out, even in waves. Fall off a dock or a pool ledge? Flip over and either 1) Call out til someone comes, or 2) Find the side of a pool or shore and swim-float-swim until you are safe. Guys, seriously, ISR is just amazing. Teaching someone as young as 6months old to self-rescue is absolutely amazing. Drowning is the #1 cause of death among children ages 4 and below. Something I, as a parent and aunt, can’t even let my brain think about. Please check it out if you know anyone with little ones: https://www.infantswim.com/
