Why do I think Swimming is Important?
I can swim, I am just not a very strong swimmer!
When Bear was one we were gifted some money to go towards swimming lessons, It was seriously the best Money and obviously one of the Kindest and the most beneficial present he got that year.
As he grew we continued with his lessons, but changed swim schools as we felt he wasn’t improving at the swim school we started with and was more standing by the side.
When Bell was born we would scrimp and save to pay for their lessons, Until the Christmas when Bell was just over one. My dad kindly paid for both of their swimming lessons, as he rather buy them something they will get the most from and obviously swimming is very high on his list! It has kind of continued to be like this for Christmas and birthdays. It works well as we only now pay half of the swimming bill. (Lucky grandchildren!)
Anyway back to why its important!
When I was pregnant with Bell, we were in Ibiza and Bear fell into the swimming pool as a older child ran passed as lost his balance. (the child did say sorry in German) I was sitting down next to the pool!
As the life guard came over Bear managed to swim to the side all by himself at the age of almost 2.5 years old!
It was the first time we saw the lessons were paying of!
So if there is one thing I would say is if you want to splash out some mony on your child for a class swimming would be one!
