Three of my four children can SWIM!

Well, it looks like this is the summer that Daniel becomes a proficient swimmer. We have only been in the pool two weekends and he is already swimming with no floaties! Not bad for a 4 1/2 year old!

Not to be outdone, Gabriela is getting braver and braver when we are in the pool with her (the only time they go without floaties). Gabriela has intermittent strabismus exotropia which affects her depth perception. It sometimes makes her a little hesitant to take risks, but not here. Check her out!

Then, there is my little fish, Cristina. She started swimming last summer and just keeps getting better and better. Rene and I were laughing at her backstroke. You can tell she is obviously right handed, as her left arm does not want to cooperate.

Ironically, when we shot these videos, my oldest, Jake, was at Competitive Swim practice. I'll have to add some video from his upcoming swim meet!

I've been around for quite a lot of time, but finally decided to show my appreciation of your work!

Thumbs up, and keep it going!
