He loves the water! Lets celebrate! [SwimWays Spring Float Giveaway: 8/20/12]

This Summer we’ve been making an effort to get Jayden in the water more. He hasn’t had lessons like we’ve planned. And I feel like a loser for not doing so, but I realize that the opportunity for lessons will still be available after the Summer season has passed. I don’t know why I felt like swim lessons were a Summer thing, when in fact they are a necessity year ’round. For parents needing to look into swimming lessons here are some resources.

American Red Cross

YMCA

USA Swimming Clubs

Boys and Girls Clubs of America

U.S. Swim School Association

Swim Lessons University

As part of the SwimWays SwimTeam, we were sent a Swim Vest which has come in handy. Every other weekend Jayden has pool time at his great grandma’s house and he absolutely loves it there. He owns the kiddie pool.

He also gets in the larger pool where wearing his vest is crucial. I love that it straps up between his legs to ensure that it stays on.

We’ve also been hitting the beach with the Swim Vest. As we arrive, he makes a mad dash to the water. He loves it!

I am just in awe at how much Jayden’s been loving the water lately, granted he still dislikes getting water in his face, but he’s handling that quite well. To celebrate Jayden’s progress, I’m having a fun little giveaway for a Spring Float! I received one too and I can’t wait to lounge in it!

Note: Comments are open to those who want to comment without getting buried in giveaway entries.

    Your beach pics are always so beautiful. Your beach looks so different from ours. Are those pebbles or is it actually sand?

      Thank you! Yes, those are pebbles! As you get closer to the water, it’s more and more pebbles and larger rocks. The shore fades into sand.

    The girls love the water, too, and we had plans to get them in swimming lessons this summer, but that fell through. To be honest, I need swimming lessons, too, and I’m hoping next Spring I can enroll the girls and I into classes.
