Update: Owen's Summer List

Swim





This isn't one of those one-and-done items; we'll be going to the pool at least a couple of times a week all summer.  But I figured I would go ahead and mark it off the list.

Owen's never had official swim lessons.  I told myself if I couldn't help him learn by midway through this summer I'd sign him up for classes.  Right now he's somewhere between actually swimming and having what looks like an underwater seizure.  But even when he's seizing he makes forward progress, so I have hope that he'll figure things out on his own.  And he's having a blast, so that's what matters anyways!

Man! Looks like your own private pool. No one there! So, what did own do in the pic where he's jumping in the pool? Did he swim or did you quickly jump in and get him??

We got there right when it opened, so we had it to ourselves a little while. I do swim with him too, but he can easily touch at the shallow end now so he doesn't need me right there anymore. We just realized today he exceeds the height allowance for the baby pool. He was sad :(

Ok so the googles made me realize that in the last few post he wasn't wearing glasses. Are glasses days over??

Googles = goggles

Umm... we've sort of declared them over, but it hasn't been officially sanctioned by the optometrist yet. He's got an appointment next week.
