WOW - how scary! I am SOO glad that everything turned out okay. It is amazing how fast it happens, and how out of control it makes us ( as parents/protectors feel.

I broke out in a cold sweat just reading about it. How scary!

Terrifying. I am not a huge fan of ocean swimming (too many sharks you know) - but my husband grew up surfing. So I have to defer to him on safety and not force my own fears on the kids. It's hard to let someone else be in charge!

I think this is a great lesson on how to teach your children to understand danger without letting fear rule them.

So glad summer is over.

oh, my gosh. I just relived that through your words. This is why my kids swim competitvely 6 days a week. My biggest nightmare always feature my kids slipping below the surface of the water or not having enough hands to save them all. So, we swim. We swim 6 days a a week. Now, it will probably be my kids saving me.

As for the nauseau, adreniline, and hand up to husband, oh, my friend, I have sooo been there.

I'm glad everything turned out alright. Growing up in California with a scuba diving Dad, the ocean still frightens me with its unpredictability.

Carmen

OMG, how incredibly scary for all of you. I'm so glad everyone is ok!
