    Son's 1st swim meet was Friday. It didn't matter how fast he is in the pool after being sick I'm glad he's good to go. He swam the 25 meter freestyle in 37 seconds. Would have been 35 seconds but he hesitated at the whistle, LOL. All in all a good meet. He swam in one other event and the other...

    My 7 1/2 year old (turns 8 on Thanksgiving) was water phobic. We've taken him swimming many times in the past and he's relied on vest or other flotation devices and was very fearful.

First the side with the disposal and then the side that doesn't have the disposal. All i can really...

    Of my 3 boys, Dakota is the weak swimmer. He has taken swimming lessons and still can't swim to well. He worries me sometimes, but has gotten alot better. He used to be afraid to put his head under the water, but now can swim a very short distance underwater. Do your children know how to swim?

    I took lessons in summer camp when I was a kid. How about you--do you know how to swim? Do your children? I am thinking of sending Kathryn for swimming lessons this summer if I can find a program for her at the Y.

    I took lessons as a kid, and I really enjoyed them. I don't swim often now but would love to do it as a fitness option if I could. My mother never learned how to swim. How about you?
