Reminds me of a time when my daughter were 8 and 5 or there abouts. They wanted to paddle our canoe, so I put the older in the back, younger in front, pushed the canoe out into the lake we were at, watched the fireworks begin! They did figure out how to paddle it forward, sideways, turn etc after a bit. Lots of folks around laughing, including my sons who were about 10 at the time. X showed up, Xploded as normal, walked away, those left continued to enjoy the show. Water was 70F temps, all of 3-4' deep for 100 yds out, they had pfd's on, knew how to swim.......all in good fun! The girlz still laugh about it!
She drives me boat,
I drives me dinghy!
