We spent as much time as possible in the pool again this summer when it wasn't raining or too cool (believe it or not) in June and July. Emma got some additional pool time with Holy Souls summer care. Every Monday, they went swimming at the Leawood pool. Emma continued to improve her swimming. Last summer, Josh was pretty much swimming by himself although he lacked a little confidence. This summer, we pretty much ditched the swim belt. He would still use it to jump off the diving board for the first part of the summer but by the end of the summer, I convinced him he could do without it and he finally believed me. It definitely made it much easier for him to do his belly flops!
