Swimming Lessons



Cole just finished swimming lessons, if you can even call them that. They were the preschool level and it was mostly exploring the water and feeling comfortable in it by playing games. He was super excited and started his first day good. However, after nearly drowning the first day (yes, Seth had to jump in and grab him because neither of his teachers or the lifeguards noticed he couldn't get up) he was understandably nervous. Seth and I had to take turns each day going in the water with him, til the last 3 lessons. If he wasn't thinking too much about it, he would do everything they asked, blow bubbles, put face in water, talk to the fish and listen for them to talk back and I'm very proud of him. Hopefully if we go swimming enough, he'll go back to how he was before his tramautic experience and love the water.

Good job Cole! At least he got back in after he nearly drowned!

How did Easton like just watching? I feel bad for the little guy. He is just in the picture just standing there watching.

Easton handled it fine. He's just counting down the days til he gets to start his lessons. And he loves to practice the things he sees Cole learn, when he's in the pool or bathtub.

Geeez Dez... I met you for the first time in the 9th grade. In Mrs. Bronson's English Class. You and Christie sat behind me! I dont ever remember having a bald teacher in high school. Anyway we were already very established friends by then Silly. You were right about the funniest though!
