Major accomplishment for the boys this summer is learning a new skill-- swimming! In just 10 days (20 hours) they learn to not be afraid of going to the deeper side of the pool, to hold their breaths for seconds, and to kick & move themselves from one end of the pool, with a board at first, and without one in the end. It was not totally tear-free in the 1st two days, but in the end, they developed a confidence and love for swimming. They're actually asking when they can next go the beach/ pool. I do plan to have them continue with the lessons weekly as their instructor will continue to offer swimming lessons throughout the [school] year.
