So while she can't swim yet obviously only having passed level 1 and 2, she is much much more confident. I am going to sign her up for summer camp at a wave pool this year and part of the day is spent on swimming lessons so she'll be further along by fall for regular lessons. I can't swim very well at all (can make it across the pool but that's about it) so I want to make sure she has some skills so I feel more confident when we're alone with no lifeguard. I am always afraid if something happened I couldn't help her.
She's turning 8 tomorrow by the way, so this has not been a quick process but now she's into it I want to keep encouraging her.
10 year old daughter will learn to tread water this summer in her lessons.
