Learning to swim helps children gain self-esteem, independence and motor skills. I use a gentle approach to help teach your child to love the water. I help children learn water safety skills, breathing techniques, floating and the four basic strokes.
Advanced Stroke Technique
Attention to stroke technique is important for an advanced swimmer to improve efficiency in the water. Private lessons focus on individual needs and help advanced swimmers improve their strokes, turns and dives.
I will help arrange a schedule that is best for you and your child.

Scott loves playing with his brother. He wishes and wants him to do everything that he does. I treasure these moments with my two boys. Nothing compares to see you older son love your younger son so much. We are so blessed!
Cherished memories. I love this time in my life. I want to push a pause button and be at this stage forever. Your children adore and love you with all their heart. It makes me want to bottle up this time in my life, as a young mom with my two sons, newly married (going on 4 years...I can't believe it!) and having so much time with my entire family.
I love Scotts simple smile. It is one of delight and happiness.
This is the perfect pool for us. A hot tub that is 96 degrees with my three boys in it. Danny is debating whether to go back to 6 days of work again, which he was at before Tyler's surgery and part of us thinks that his work schedule/family time balance is perfect just the way it is now. We shall see what he decides. Here is Scott at about 5 1/2 months in the same hat as Tyler. Do they look alike?
Scott seems so serious. Maybe we were more serious as parents. Maybe it is just his personality. Maybe it is the 1-2 month difference in age. Maybe he is concentrating on staying afloat.
I don't think they look alike, but think it is fun to look at old pics. Memories. When Tyler wears something that Scott used to wear a lot it brings back good memories and makes me realize how big Scott is. Amazing what happens in 18 months.

Tyler. Our little miracle.Ok. I am starting to steal pictures of other peoples babies because they are so cute and so strong and I want to share them with the world. This is baby Joshua who is the same age as Tyler and underwent his Norwood and Glenn around the same time. He is doing so well and it just fills my heart with happiness. I love this little guy so much and am so proud of him. I miss him and Allison but glad that he and Tyler are home.
And little Gracie continues to improve each day. Her parents thought that she wasn't going to make it about a week ago and look at her now. She truly is a miracle recovering from the Norwood each day. These kids made it through one of the most difficult open heart surgeries. I think their eyes all do such a great job showing their strength and love. They are heroes.

Sorry I forgot to post the answer until now. Ben & Anonymous Win...Scott was enthralled with watching people fly at iFly. It was a very cool experience and we'll have to go back in a year when Scott is three and able to fly. He was very happy watching, however, wanted nothing to do with flying or us while in our hot pink and hot purple suits. I think my hubby looked hot flying in his purple suit. They adjust the force of wind depending on size and ability and you get in the flying position and up, down and around you go. Our teacher, the guy in the green, helped with hand signals and repositioning when needed.
