Leaps and Bounds

There are some things that come so easily to my boy.

But swimming... is not one of those things.
If you followed my blog last summer, you may remember the two weeks of nightmarish swimming lessons (yeah, you can relive it yourself starting here)we endured, only for Drew to forget everything he learned once the weather warmed up last month.

So, yesterday, when I went and picked him up at Grandma's house, I couldn't have been happier to see him turn this corner:

Sorry for the blurry photos. It took me a couple of tries to learn that my new camera has a setting called "Children moving actively". I think my camera will remain on that setting permanently.

Oh... and just because these are too good not to share:

(I can almost hear the Baywatch theme song starting)

Precious! As a mom on the job a little longer (15, 8 and 7) I will say what you rounded the corner to find is my favored method of learning to swim, just fun with faamily at the child's own pace. We only tried lessons once with my oldest and it didn't go well, but pool fun eventually brought about three competent swimmers (even if it isn't always classically "pretty"). Free yourself from the stress of swim lessons!
