E's swim class really helped her to be a little more confident in the water. By the end of the class, she was volunteering to go under the water and jump into the pool.
Floating on her back:
O did really great at his parent-child swim lessons too. He learned to float on his back with only my hand supporting his head, kick his legs with his head out of the water, support himself on a poole noodle and kick his legs (without assistance), go under the water (although he hated it), climb out of the pool, and jump into the pool. This boy basically has no fear of the water.
Swimming on the pool noodle:
He's still learning how to swim with the Puddle Jumper Life Jacket, but I am going to go ahead and guess that he'll be swimming on his own by the time he's E's age.
Unfortunately, I was unable to attend L's swim lessons so I'll just add some pictures of him from this summer in the pool. He was already swimming pretty good on his own, but his strokes are getting much better and he's getting stronger.
He can swim all the way across Pop's pool:
