My husband just bought a 17 ft. canoe and we took our three children (2, 4, and 6 years old) to the lake today for the first time. All three children wore life vests. The experience was terrifying to me. I could only stay in the canoe for a few minutes before I made my husband row me and my 2 year old to shore. I was terrified the canoe would tip over and my 2 and 4 year old who can't swim would be struggling and I'm not a very good swimmer myself...My husband is a great swimmer, though.
I want to love this but the entire time i am so scared I feel like I am going to throw up.
Advice and encouragement would be much appreciated!!!
