And so ends one of the toughest weeks of the summer for me: swim lesson week. I'm relieved to find that my kids still love the water, and have that much more familiarity with it. They're not swimmers yet, but I know that they'll get there in their own time. Every experience reduces my anxiety and makes me a little more confident that putting them around water isn't a tragedy waiting to happen. Most importantly, they pushed their limits a bit, and still had fun. As long as their feelings about swimming are positive, I'm comfortable that proficiency will come eventually.
