Bert Lozada Launches 2016 Summer Courses

Summertime is here! The best way to enjoy the season is to get that sun-kissed skin because almost everyone of us is planning on our next summer destination. In doing so, we also need to keep ourselves safe as well as our children.

I must admit, I am not the right person to do that because I am not an expert swimmer. For the past two years, I have been meaning to enroll the kids to swimming lesson but the schedule always doesn't permit. This time, I have no more excuse since Bert Lozada Swimming School (my top choice) has convinced me to do so.

They invited mommy bloggers to their anniversary last Saturday at Ace Water Spa and introduced the their programs to us as well as the school's structure. I must say, I am more than convinced already to enroll the kids and I hope myself too.
