This summer, Xander has been taking swimming lessons through his preschool. They go over to the Sports Mall and swim for about an hour, 4 days a week for 2 months. Last week ended the swimming lessons, and I have been really anxious to find some time to get him into our new apartment's pool to see what he has learned.
There's a lot he still needs to learn and practice in the pool, but one thing I am thrilled about is just how comfortable he is in the water! Last year, he would cling to us in the pool and not play around at all. This year, he's putting his face in the water, jumping off the sides, and testing his abilities without a floaty! I'm so proud of my little fish!
On Friday, Xander kept saying how much he missed GrammiLu and that she should come swimming with us. He was so excited when she actually came over to play in the pool! Between the rides in the pool she gave him and all the tossing up into the air he got from Tiff and Grandma, I think he was absolutely thrilled to be swimming that afternoon.
