Swim lessons

Blake just started swimming lessons. My only real hope for the lessons is that he would at least get in the water as that seems to be our biggest problem when it comes to the pool. And seeing as you can't learn anything else until you actually GET IN, I figured this was a logical first step.

On day one of lessons I got Blake all pumped up. He was so excited until I told him he was going to get wet. His reply, "I don't want to get wet." Awesome, I can see this is going to go well.

We just had lesson five today and things are actually going great. He gets in, kicks, blows bubbles and I even had to do a Bay Watch save when Blake slowly started sinking to the bottom and the teacher didn't notice. Not only was I the big hero but Blake is under the impression that he "swam by himself" and could not be more proud of him accomplishment.

Mixed Signals

I think my dad wants me to blog more but maybe I am reading too much into his last comment. Maybe someone else can help me figure it out. I wish he was more direct.

"This blog never changes. I want a refund."

I plan to get back at it this week. As a follow up to my m&m post I have to admit that I found a green gummy bear in the bottom of my church bag today and ate that too! I don't know what is happening to me but it felt like Christmas when I saw it. Sunday school was about to start so that might have had something to do with my excitement.
