Do you have a pool you can take your girl/s to?

If so, do they enjoy it?

Do they know the basics of the water (ie ... do they know to kick legs and move their arms).

We actually haven't taken the girls to a huge pool only the small pools we have near us and so far they love swimming

We have a small-ish pool (it's 12 ft wide and 2.5 ft deep), but we don't have any big public pools nearby. So far though, they all love the water and Alyssa understands the concept of swimming (with floaties on), the rest of them mostly just splash in the water though.

We could go to the city pool or community center, but we never do. Grace has been swimming a few times, at my uncle's pool and once for her 3rd birthday party. She doesn't know how to swim. I want her to have lessons one of these days. Anna hasn't been swimming yet.

My little girl is only 5 months old so she doesn't really swim, but we have gotten her in the pool a couple times this summer. She loves the water!

Abby loves the water but she doesn't swim yet and there aren't many places to take her up here.

My nephews have been avoiding the water, I wonder if that comes from their father fear of it...
