Fast forward two years. We're staying a week on that beautiful island in the first photo. He's 4 years old now. Each afternoon I'd put the floaties on his arms, and he would put his googles on and float, looking for fish in the water. He'd pop up to tell me what he saw. One afternoon, he didn't put the floaties on. He floated, just like every other day, but this time, without the floaties. After about an hour of floating, playing, and exploring (with me keeping a vigilant watch), he came back to the towel. I asked him, "Did you forget anything?" He looked at me with a puzzled look on his face. I pointed to his arms. He looked at me, and a big grin quickly spread from ear to ear. He screamed, "I was swimming--all by myself!"
Do you remember when you learned to swim?
If you don't know how to swim, do you want to learn?
