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.
