Is My Child Ready for Swimming Lessons?

Have fun Swimming

This is a question I found myself asking for far too long. I always knew I wanted my children to learn to swim. I love being in water and swimming so of course I want them to experience this love but my main reason was something else. Simply put, it was for their safety. I want my children to be able to survive if a moment ever arises that they fall into a pool or any body of water. We live around a lot of lakes and in the summer time most people … [Read more...]

Flourishing at SafeSplash Swim School #IAmSafeSplash

SafeSplash Swim School #IAmSafeSplash

What I didn't realize at the time was just how happy we … [Read more...]
