We created our own pool with a slide. Nothing fancy but it has been a huge hit so far.... And the portion of type A personality in me is happy that no grass gets in the water since it is on the deck!
Treyman started swim lessons yesterday and really, really loved it. It was basically 45 minutes of 1:1 instruction. He floated on his back, streamlined kicked underwater for about 15 ft independently, drove to the bottom to retrieve water toys, and even took a few freestyle strokes to the wall! Not too shabby for day 1! Apparently, 90% of the kids in his class are/will be able to swim after the 2 week program.

Trey has already asked me when he can join the swim team and my heart almost burst with excitement! I always hoped my kids would want to swim, although I will try not to pressure them into it. :)
