Erin had the toughest time in June 2010 with swim lessons because she could not get over a fear of doing the back float. You can't pass into the next level of lessons until you can do the back float independently. What a difference a year makes! This year she was floating within the first two days of lessons, and she was able to graduate level 2 and move into level 3. It's so important in Michigan for my girls to be good swimmers, so I'm glad to see she's not afraid anymore!
