Easton's Turn in the Pool

Easton finally was able to have his swimming lessons. He was counting down the days for almost 2 weeks. Every day he had swimming lessons he put his swim suit on in the morning instead of clothes. He did so good! At first he would barely put his face in the water without plugging his nose, but quickly he was staying underwater for a very long time ("like a jillion seconds, huh mom?") without plugging his nose and loved that he could open his eyes underwater.
(about to go underwater)

He thought he was pretty cool when they went to the deep end with life jackets on. He was so excited to tell anyone who would listen "I swam all by myself on my back but with a life jacket on." And even later in the day he told me "Mom, I just can't believe it. I swam all by myself on my back. I just can't believe it!"
