The boys just finished up two weeks of swimming lessons...and they loved every minute of it!
Andrew was "old hat" at it, after doing two or three sessions of lessons last summer. He did very well, and our only disappointment is that he had to miss 2 of the six lessons because he was sick last week.
Jacob was ecstatic to be old enough to do something that Andrew is doing! We haven't taken him to the pool in a very long time because we didn't want to aggravate his ear isssues.
Well, I found a nifty product to keep water from getting in his ears. Silicone ear plugs with a head wrap to ensure that the ear plugs don't fall out. He loved having lessons, and did very well at attempting everything Miss Sylvia asked him to do!
I post this picture for those of you who have trouble facing the world because of a low self-esteem.
It's okay to laugh...I'm his mother, and I did. But only out of the presence of the children. So go ahead, but also remember that you, too, can have such exuberance and joy in life despite whatever self-esteem issue you may have!
Cuz' if Jacob could care less that he has on an ear band, yellow goggles, and a band-aid on his chin, nothing can be that bad! :)
