We had Lucia do four private swimming lessons this year with a lifeguard, but I don't think this was enough. She needs a regular weeks- or months-long class that's a little more intensive. I'm going to look into it for the fall. She really wants to do the waterslides in the big pool, but she needs much stronger swimming skills before she'll be able to do her deep water test (which you have to pass before you can go on the slides).
I'm nowhere near being one of the moms sitting in a chair in the shade, reading a book while the kids play in the water; but I can glimpse it, at least.
