To date I reckon we must have spent more than $1000 on swimming lessons for our two older boys (the twins haven't even started yet), but we have basically nothing to show for it.
Sure, they are getting in the water and putting their faces in, but it is still all about dog paddle. Barely a hint of actual swimming. We even have to do our lessons on a Saturday because the centre doesn't "do frogs after school".
I certainly haven't been as diligent as I could have been (we are Spring/Summer swimmers), but you really start to wonder if there are kids who just don't learn?
Could Nugget and Doo Dah be the first?
What is your 'learn to swim' story with your kids? Have you got any suggestions for helping them learn to swim? Does it all 'just click' at some point? I don't think my blood pressure can stand many more near drownings at their lessons.
