Caden's Story

On Sunday afternoon our family went out to Eagle Lakes Ski Resort in Tracy, CA.  While walking with my son, Caden, along the River's edge we ventured a little further into the water.  Caden lost his footing when the shelf dropped off and he immediately went into the swim for 3 seconds and then floated until I picked him. 

Remembering what my Instructor, Julie Schiess, told me, I fought the urge to pick him up immediately, I waited for him to roll over on his back.  I stood him up on his feet, kissed his head, and sent him on his way. Of course my heart was beating so hard I thought it was going to pop out of my chest.  Caden continued playing in the water, and I stood there thinking, "WOW! These lessons are amazing and just saved my sons life!"
