We decided to start the processing of swimming today with some water play that I know he loves. Enter the water hose; as long as it doesn't touch his hair, he is one exuberant lentil. And since we don't waste water here in droughty-droughty Texas, we fill up buckets to water the plants with. :)
Then, when we headed to swim I think it kind of worked. He seemed less frantic about the whole thing. Here he is swimming like a champ. I always took the picture right after he got a push from Ms. Diana. I want to make it clear that she is not always holding him under water. He just needs a little momentum to get goin. :)
A proud boy after a good swim!
