Tonight is my daughter's first swimming lesson. We have been out and bought her a new swimming costume, goggles and towel and it is all packed away in her bag ready for this evening. She is very excited!
Last year during our holiday she gained more confidence in the water and on occasions going off on her own in the shallow water and trying her best but hopefully with some guiding lessons when we go on holiday this year she will be able to swim properly.
I remember as a child myself having swimming lessons clinging on to the edge for dear life and trying to kick my legs, learning how to put my full face in the water, making my first solo swim across the pool, now I love swimming and try to do 20 lengths every time I go!
