I took swimming lessons as a child but never learned to swim. This is Michigan, the "water wonderland" a state of boats, surfing, fishing, swimming, water skiing and wetsuits. Living in this state practically mandates that one know how to swim. This is my son with two of his children, my grandchildren, and of course they know how to swim. Grandma, mom (me) was sitting on the side with feet dangling in the water. :-)
Both my sons took to water like ducks. From the time they could sit up in the bath tub, the water became their new play ground. They could not be left alone in the water as they had no fear. They would totally immerse themselves and gave me many frightening moments, until thankfully, they were swimming; no lessons needed. They say that infants are natural swimmers so we should encourage the love of water at a young age.
