We are, for the most part, a family of water lovers. We love fishing, canoeing, kayaking. swimming, and beachcombing -- which technically isn't in the water but next to it. Summer hits and we are all about water sports with a vengeance. This summer it has been the season for perfecting swim strokes. Every time we are at a pool or lake the girls ask me to help them with their swimming; to help them with their diving. So for a month we have been working while we have been cooling off, and today I saw tons of pay off.
Progress to the point where a friend said, "Your daughter has a nice even stroke." And she does. Now to get in the time to practice, practice, practice. She is long and lean -- with long arms and legs. She could be quite the swimmer given the chance.
