It took him a while before he would let go of my thumbs but when I gave him a blue floating dumbbell he was all over the pool. He was so proud of himself and his ability to be "a real big kid". It wasn't just something he said when he proved it to himself and everyone else at the pool. He cant wait to go back again or everyday.
This was more than enough proof that I need to enroll him in swimming lessons this summer. I know he would love it.
