Even after the first day, I could see major improvements. And by the end of the 2nd day, they both jumped off the diving board. I couldn't believe it! I never thought in a million years that Mark would jump off the diving board. Mark definitely made the most progress. He swam across the pool and got much more confident in the water. Dax did well the first few days, but for some reason, the 3rd day he decided he was scared to swim across the deep water. No matter how much we told him it was the same swimming no matter the depth, he sort of shut down after that. The last few days were more difficult in getting him to cooperate. But he still loves that water, so I'm sure we can start fresh next year.
|Sometimes it's still hard for me to believe Mark jumped off the diving board.|
|But he did it a TON of times!|
|This was the first few days of class. He would cover his eyes during the kicks.|
|New kid with his goggles. I think this picture is hilarious!|
|He loves swimming lessons now!|
|All the way under the water. Another swimming miracle!|
