I was able to get my 3 kids in to "semi-private" lessons - meaning just them. I had a bad experience a couple of years ago with my kids in "normal" lessons - bad, meaning Jonas under the water without the teacher knowing, me shouting for them to get Jonas out, Jonas coming out and barfing up pink barf. Nice, eh? Anyways, my kids are no fishes when it comes to swimming. They love being in the water - but not their heads in the water. So we did lessons and saw some definite improvements - especially with Miles. He goes under the water all the time now. He loves it. The other 2 kids will dunk their noses and mouths in the water a little. Still, an improvement. :) Here are some fun pictures of their last day:Cutie.
