We are so thankful that our children continue to love the water and have learned to also respect it.
After Edna Mae's accident, I personally had a hard time seeing or being near water and I most definitely did not find joy in it. In the months and now years following, I LOVE watching my children enjoy it so much.
Shannon dealt with Em's death differently, he wanted our family to continue to love the water. He was actually in the pool a few short weeks after the accident. He has been amazing working with them to build their skills.
Our children now know...
To always swim with a buddy
To have an adult supervise at all times
All toys out of the pool
Pool Fence must always be closed and Locked
