Ronan Loves Swimming

Ronan means 'Little Seal'... looks like he's living up to his namesake

Ronan has been working on his swimming with Aunt Nancy for about a year now and their efforts are showing. He's water-safe, capable of swimming lengths of the pool, and perhaps most importantly, he loves it. In fact Ronan almost always wears a broad grin when he's playing in the pool - the video above is a testament to that!

This is a wonderful video - I love how you've captured his strokes and big smile from under the water. He's even hamming it up with the hand moves! I didn't know that camera could capture an image in the air from under that water. Great job. And yes, I'd better reserve a place for "little seal" in the Junior Lifeguard program :-)

I didn't know you put a pool in your backyard--looks awesome! If "little seal" ever needs to be rescued, just give me a buzz--I have experience! Anyway, I thought I suggested to you a while back that instead of teaching "Seal" how to swim safely, You ought to train him how to clean the house!
