Everybody in the Pool II - Learning the Strokes


After suiting up, these campers learn how to do the strokes that will help them be better swimmers. This day,  it was so hot and humid,  I almost threw my camera aside and jumped in with them!

Today the second in my series from the Summer Learning Program at the Children's Fresh Air Farm. More tomorrow.  Read about the great article that the B'ham News featured recently here.

All very attentive. The photographer can take her time.

You did a very nice job with taking the picture! The funny thing is, that I live by the sea and still can't swim properly :)

Perfect timing. They are so ready to go it's like you snapped this the instant before a sneeze.

I KNOW you're having fun with this one. I think that learning to swim is one of the greatest joys of childhood, I'm a water baby to this day.
