Tommy Makes Great Swimming Progress

video

Tommy has been making great progress with his swimming even just over the last four days- he is putting his head in the water, taking his feet off the ground and kicking like crazy. Isn't he doing well.

Tommy,

Great job on learning to swim! My boys are both swimmers on teams now and they love it. When they first started, they were afraid of the water, but once they got going it was easy and fun!

Well done Tommy! I used to find it really hard to put my head in the water like that. You'll be swimming in no time.

Hi Tommy,
Excellent work well done. I must say that my middle daughter was always reluctant to put her head under the water but once she had overcome this she went on to really enjoy swimming, so much in fact that she is now teaching her own children ( 4 and 3 years old) to swim and they both love it as well :-)

Way to go Tommy! When I was learning to swim I found it very scary to put my head under the water. You look like you do that really well. That strong kicking will have you swimming in very little time.

Tommy, you are so brave to put your head under the water, taking your feet off the ground and kicking so hard after only 4 days! I can't wait to see your next video with all the new things you can do in the water.
Keep up the fabulous effort.

from Ms H (who teaches some 5th graders in Bangkok, Thailand who don't like putting their heads underwater)

Hi Tommy

Your swimming is fantastic. I love the way your arms are super straight and you have your chin tucked nice and close to your neck. Fabulous kicking too!!!!

Your class photo at the swimming pool is awesome too. Good luck with the rest of your swimming.

That's pretty much the power of blogging. You can share the great learning and achievements of our children but best of all we can share that learning with you.
