Swimming in Fun

Growing up, we started our first two weeks of summer with my Mom packing my sisters and I down to the YMCA to take swimming lessons. You started as a tadpole, grew to a minnow and worked your way through the swimming "ranks". Mom preferred this to her "sink or swim" method of learning.

I have never been scared of the water and have always enjoyed swimming. That is all thanks to my Mom. I wanted my boys to have the same enjoyment so I enrolled them in swimming lessons. Big Guy took lessons over several years with a local swim school and is a pretty good swimmer, but I have been THRILLED with Little Guy's swim instructor. Someone told me about Debra Stapleton last summer and WHAT A DISCOVERY! Little Guy not only swims like a fish, but he can swim every stroke you have ever heard of... all in two weeks time AND he is an amazing diver too!

Thanks, Ms. Debra! You are truly a hidden treasure!

i remember the days of being a tadpole and a minnow. i was known as the "diving dolphin" because i would climb up and dive off of the high dive, which you couldn't pay me to do today!
