Just Keep Swimming

Trevor is a talented person with lots of strengths. Many things have come naturally to him over the years. Unfortunately, swimming is not one of them. Steve and I both learned to swim very young and swam competitively throughout our childhoods. It is important to us that Trevor becomes a strong swimmer. Despite years and years of swim lessons, he is still not water-safe. This past summer, we invested the time and money into nearly-daily private swim lessons for Trevor. He had excellent teachers and made significant improvements. All of us (Steve and I, Trevor, his swim teachers) were hoping that Trevor would make enough progress to pass the swim test at Cub Scout Camp in late July. He didn't. 

Just keep swimming, Trevor. You'll pass that swim test eventually, hopefully next summer. We're so proud of all the hard work you've put in so far and can't wait to celebrate with you when you finally accomplish that goal.


  1. I know he will pass! I love love love your page! LOVING the photos and the title work!!!!!!

  2. He'll get it some day! I didn't learn to swim until I was in my 30s! Although I'm still not that great at it!
    Love the layers of waves and multi-colored font title!

  3. Ohhhh, Trevor! I can't swim very well at all!! It seems like everyone I know can swim like a fish, except me. I didn't learn when I was young, and by the time I did, I couldn't go under without holding my nose (or with a nose plug, which always left a lovely tan line, LOL). I LOVE being around water though, so I'm just careful. He will get it though, he's so good at everything!! :)
    I LOVE this layout!! The colors are gorgeous together, that golden yellow really helps the blues and greens pop! :) The title is beautiful! :)

  4. Keep at it Trevor! You will pass!

  5. You can tell Trevor for me that it took me until I was 12 years old to be able to pass the swim test. I'm very proud of him for all of his efforts, and I think it's wonderful that you scrapped it.

  6. Man I can relate to Trevor-- I'm a horrible swimmer. Just keep swimming Trevor!!! :)
