“My dad found a cool program in Port Townsend where kids can take boating lessons. He’s going to sign me up. When I’m eight, in the summer of 2013, I’ll be able to learn to sail. I can’t wait until July.”
Dad says: Annie loves the water. She loves to swim, and she is excited to participate in anything that has to do with water. I never learned to swim as a child, and I’m still a weak swimmer today. Swimming is a life skill I wish I had. I decided early on that Annika should be given the opportunity to learn to swim at a young age. She’s taken swimming lessons every summer since she was two.
