Snapshots of Swim

Here are just a few of the photos from the swim lessons that have consumed our lives for the past two weeks. The children take lessons at Lawson's which is a Boone County institution. It's a wonderful, family-run backyard pool that has taught a generation of children in this area to swim. I'm always amazed at the children's progress in just two weeks, and they love it! Tomorrow is our last day for this year, and so life will return to "normal."


  1. are they doing swim lessons any more this year? My mom offered to pay but I haven't looked into it. We went to Jane's day care growing up and she gave us free swim lessons! Great memories at her day care. :)

  2. Spending my school breaks and summers in Florida, I never needed swimming lessons...now that my girls are growing up in Virginia, I'm going to need to look into it pretty soon.

    By the way...we visited Florida almost two weeks ago and I excitedly sported my modest swimwear...thanks again for the help!!!!
