Swimming Lessons - Day 11

Austin cried harder than ever today. He didn't cry on the way in...he cried on the way out. He didn't want to get out of the water! What a turn around - 180 degrees. He did awesome today.

We have been letting him pick with sibling should go next. Today as Austin was getting out of the pool I asked Tanya if it would be ok for him to stay in with John (whom he picked). She said yes and he stayed by the stairs and cheered him on. I thought it would help John. It helped Austin more. He stayed in through Lauren and Tyler as well and when it was time to get out he threw a little fit.

What an improvement! (I never thought I'd say a fit was an improvement.) I'm hoping the babies will get there soon.

Slow progress is still progress. I remember teaching swimming to three year olds - some of them loved it right away and some took longer.
