Have I mentioned that my little family is challenged in the swimming department?
Well, my kiddos have always trailed a little behind the swimming curve.
Did you know that you can freestyle swim in place?
Oh, you can.
I painfully watched Max do it every morning during swim team practice last summer.
Cal, staying true to his no-care attitude, has spent the majority of his nearly six years completely uninterested in learning to swim. Lessons since 6 months old and NOTHIN'!
Why? Well, mystery solved.
On Friday, I decided to test my own abilities in the water. (I'm considering training for a triathlon and unfortunately, swimming is sort of a requirement.)
One lap and I was gasping for air and choking on water. How could this be? I just ran a marathon and I can't swim one lap!
Guess the apples just don't fall far from the tree.
I have come to conclude...
these apples should probably hang up the goggles and Speedos and comfortably stay put on land.
(*Just after posting this, Cal started swimming on his own this morning! Guess we're not ready to throw in the towel just yet.)
