This week was swim lessons. The first day we cried huge alligator tears for 2/3's of the time. (It also happened to be raining so we were all soaked and discouraged.) We changed to a different class that one of his friends was in. It went better. Here he is being an alligator. The boy in front is the son of a girl I went to high school with.
Yesterday he actually agreed to get in line and go under the hoop. When they took him to the 4ft pool and tried to put him in a life jacket he told them, "No thank you, I already have one." and then hid behind his friend's Mom.
He even alligatored through the hoop. He steady fastly refused to let the teachers help him float. He tried to show them he could do it himself though.
He got 3 checks out of 13. That might be 1 better then last year. He did not get a check for fully submerging his face, but considering he doggy paddled for awhile with his face underwater, I think he should have! There is always next year.
