Thankful Thursday

There's always something that we should be thankful for, and yet not many of us express it out loud. This is why I like thankful Thursday. It's a place were I can share with all of you one of them million things I am thankful for. While I'm not sure if my friend Heather over at The Homesteading Hippy will be posting, I know for sure she is a very thankful person and is a big part of this Thankful Thursday

Today I am thankful for "The Gift of Swimming" program, not sure if similar programs are offer throughout the United States, but here in Florida we are lucky to have this program in place.

They offer survival swimming lessons for children, it’s so sad the statistics about children between 0 an 4 that fall into a pool and drown, if only they knew some survival skills they could have swim to the edge or at least float until someone would come and rescue them.

We learned about this program through Kira’s school, as they offer free classes and transportation from school and back to children ages 3 and 4 years of age. We are fortunate to have been selected to participate and love the progress that Kira has been doing.

While Kira would defend herself at a pool it is important for us that she learn proper ways of survival incase of an emergency.

Children are assign a personal trainers and have to attend every day (Monday through Friday) for the length of the program which is 4 to 5 weeks.

The staff is great and very child friendly, they make the process both the parents and children as simple and easy as possible. Every children is different and they treat them as so, this is one of the many reasons I believe they assign a personal trainer to each child.

This an many other reasons is why I am thankful to them.

I also live in Florida and have heard about this type of swim lessons. Having 2 kids and 1 on the way and living in a community with a pool water safety is always a concern of mine. I've taught both my kids at a young age how to swim. We are always around water especially in the summer.
