Why We Put Our One Year Old Daughter in Swim Lessons

Blake and I just got home from her weekly swim lesson and she has the best time while there. I never took swim lessons when I was younger because my parents taught me to swim just as soon as I could walk. My grandparents both have pools so we lived at the pool in the summers. In fact, from age 19 months until age 12, I was the first one in the water each summer when the covers came off the pools! I always planned on just teaching Blake to swim over the summer at her great grandparent’s pools just like I did, but when I thought more about it, I thought it might be good for her to know some basics before spending our days poolside.
