grand daughter (4y.o.) swimming

  1. Here's a couple of the grand daughter swimming saturday afternoon. This bathing suit has floatation in both front and back of suit so she was able to swim freely about the pool, jump of diving board, basically having a great time. Yes, Grandmother was always in the water next to her, she's just been cropped out. Greg had a very excellent suggestion in his post.
    D3, 70-200 2.8.
    Thanks for viewing,

    Great shots - I like #1.
     
  3. Very nice- looks like a fun time.
     
  4. kevin....
    love those shots
    but...
    permit me to be a pediatrician for a moment

    no flotation, of any kind, off a boat, after age 1
    let that lovely lady learn how to swim.... and she NEVER WILL in that flotation suit and floaties....

    those devices have led to over 75% of all drownings in the US... from ages 1-5 in the last 10 years
    (because of the false sense of security that the impart on their wearers)

    sorry to pontificate so loudly
    just a bathing suit please..... give her lessons
    i beg of you

    sorry...

    i DO like the series, however
     
  5. Greg,
    not a problem whatsoever, she will have lessons, in every shot what you don't see is MeMe (Grandmother) that is cropped out of the pic, she wasn't about to leave lil Raven unattended with the floaties on. Thanks for the concern and kind words.

    Good advice. Thank you.
    I feel really bad right now because my little one, 2.5, wants to be in the pool without floaties or anything but I'm the one forcing him to wear them. What you say makes sense; how is he gonna learn to swim like that?
