The older boys were able to take a week’s worth of swimming lessons again this summer. Micah’s started to get the hang of the fact that if you kick your legs and move your arms you can swim. So that was progress. Calvin’s diving got a bit better, and he’s certainly a little fish in the water. When you live in a place without pools you have to get creative and seize opportunities to learn to swim when you can.
The highlight for Micah was getting to jump off the diving board. I can’t wait till I am more comfortable of him around the water. He makes me pretty nervous. Judah still prefers throwing things into water than being in it. Maybe next year.
