Preston's Swim Lessons

Preston started doing some swim lessons with our favorite swimmer, Rachel. She helped both the girls learn to swim and now Preston is old enough to get started too! She does a great job of making kids feel comfortable in the water and building their confidence (since all our kids have freaked out initially when it comes time to learn) and she is super fun too! We all love Rachel :-)! Hopefully by next summer Preston will be ready to start swim team too...we'll see how it goes!
Here are some pictures of his first little lesson.

Can you recommend some good goggles for little kids? We are about to start swim lessons and I think they'd help the kids feel a lot more comfortable.

We have used these TYR kids ones for all the kids starting out. They have sun protection in them which I like since they start out in the outdoor pools. They seem a little big on Preston still though but I haven't found anything smaller. They come in tons of colors as well which is nice. Preston was much more excited to swim when we went and got him new ones in his favorite color...orange :-).
