Just Keep Swimming

Jacob has been so hesitant to get in the swimming pool since last summer when he thought he could just jump in and learned real quick that that isn’t the case.  He loves the water and will go completely under but refused to get off the steps.  So, we decided that he needed to take swimming lessons just so he would get comfortable with the water and realize it isn’t as scary as it seems. 


We took a two week class and the first day was nerve racking for me because I wasn’t sure of how he would actual do.  One of the lifeguards named Erin was so sweet and she did so well with him.  She was able to get him in the water and prove to him that he could touch the bottom and not go under.  So after the initial shock he did GREAT!  I was so proud of him.  By the end of the two weeks he was not afraid of the pool anymore. 


And now we have a little fish!


Just keep swimming little man, by next summer you should be swimming with no floaties!
