Swimming Lessons

We’re preparing for a hot El Paso summer by giving the kids swimming lessons at our local YMCA.

EA and MC have had lessons before, when we were in Virginia. They’re still in a beginning class, but they’re much more comfortable with the water than they were before.

This is Will’s first time participating in swimming lessons.

I will admit that I was super nervous about him and how he would react to the water.

I’m not a swimmer and am nervous in the water myself. I have actually considered taking adult lessons and probably should. So, the thought of my babies being in the water, especially if they are fearful, puts my nerves on edge.

But I had no reason to worry with Will.

He has loved every minute of this time!

No, he’s not one hundred percent comfortable with getting his head or face wet and he’s a little stiff, but he is having a blast and being so brave.

I’m proud of this boy of mine…I don’t let him know that near enough.
