My mom taught my brothers and I how to swim when we were babies. I swam before I walked! She would take us swimming all the time when we were growing up, and she was always an active participant in our fun. I remember a game we used to play that we called 'Washing Machine'. My mom would vigorously swish one of us around as the 'clothes', we would sing the song, and the other kid had to hold onto the wall and kick their legs as if they were the bubbles!
I love taking Sage and Fern swimming. I feel I am honoring my mom, and I feel her spirit with us.
