Celebrate Summer Swim Goals + DIY Swim Kit #CelebrateEveryGoal
We had only one goal that we wanted to celebrate this year, to get through the season without crying. This is Year 3 of our summer swim classes. If you have been following our family’s journey, you know that this is a BIG deal.
I have a shy and timid son, and he’s slow to change and fears new challenges. We also live in Florida. Surrounded by water, I knew how important it was to make sure that he knew how to swim. The teacher warned me the first year, “This is new to most kids. They probably won’t like me.” This was followed by 2 straight weeks of crying…for both mom and son. Year 2 also brought on tears.
The year 2014 was going to be OUR year. I want to help my son celebrate his third year of swimming and encourage him as much as possible. After brainstorming, I came up with this Upcycled Swim Kit to tell my son that “You Can Do It!” So I headed to Walgreens, where I knew I could find great swim essentials items at a great price. Right now, Walgreens has a great promotion to help your family celebrate summer goals. Balance Reward Members can earn 3,000 points for every $15 spent on select Johnson & Johnson products. So I grabbed spray Neutrogena Sunscreen, Waterproof Band-Aids, Neosporin and Children’s Zyrtec to place in our kit.
