Swim School Progress

The kids are doing great in their swim classes, and even though I tried to resist, I couldn't help but break out the camera during their lesson today. Among their accomplishments are jumping into the pool on their own, holding their breath underwater, and retrieving objects underwater. Now, they are working on using their arms without kicking their legs ("straight legs"), and keeping their face down while reaching with their arms. The instructors' first milestone is to teach their students to get from one end of the pool to the other without using their legs, and to develop good, full arm strokes.
