Today's topic: Childhood Swimming Memory
I meant to take the camera today when we went to the pool and I forgot, darn it!!!
I know we usually had some type of kiddie pool in my yard every summer. I think one summer when I was a bit older my Dad put a stock tank in the yard and filled it for me so it would be deeper than a kiddie pool. In my home town there was an indoor pool, so you could swim there year round. I did take swim lessons during the summer though when school was out. I was really a pretty good swimmer since I started lessons so young. I remember once as a kid we went to my Dad's side family reunion and I was about 7. My Aunt made me wear those goofy water wing arm blow up things and it made me SO MAD because I was already a proficient swimmer, but my cousins could not swim so she made me wear them like everyone else.
