This is the first summer that I signed Eli up for swimming lessons. He is taking them through the Florence Parks & Rec which is WAY cheaper than anything else I could find, and they do a great job! As you can see from the picture, he is enjoying himself... learning to kick with a kickboard, blow bubbles, and put his head under water (haven't gotten there yet). This picture was taken on the 2nd day of swimming lessons, after he cried through the entire first day because "technically" three-year-olds are supposed to be in a class without mom & dad. Unfortunately for Eli, that just wasn't going to happen :) Most of the kids in his new class are very close to turning three, so he fit right in. I think it's more important that he enjoys the lessons in a lower level class, rather than dread going each day. Maybe next year he can conquer the "true" Level 1 class :) Good job Eli!
