My Little Dolphin

Max's swimming lessons are coming along very well, I am so proud of my fishy! He loves to go to "swimmin' school", in fact he asks to go everyday. He gets through the class with a big smile on his face and lots of laughs. He's learning fast, and even when something is "scawy", he does it without complaint. The teachers are fantastic, they really push the kids and don't let them get away with anything! They have fun but they work hard too, Max is exhausted by the end of class. I think we'll stick with this for a while, he loves it, it's good for him and living where we do he really needs to be an expert in the water. Aside from what he's getting out of it, I'm learning too. Sitting on the sidelines with the other parents gives me an opportunity to make new mommy friends and practice my Spanish, everyone wins!

Here's a quickie video, a little from his first class and a little from his sixth class (last night). I was blown away by his trip to the bottom of the pool and his swimming on his own, this from a kid who wouldn't put his ears under water only three weeks ago!

Thanks for watching!

Wow!! Just freakin WOW!! You go Max, that underwater thing was incredible and he did a really good job of swimming alone with his face in the water. WOW!! I'm really impressed with Max and with his teacher. I see a handsome dive guide in training.

Wonderful progress, what a wise thing to give him. Now he'll have confidence in the water, and who knows? maybe save a life someday.
