This summer has been a turning point for our Brady & his swimming skills. He has gone from using floaties in the the pool to not really needing them any more. So, we decided to put him in swimming lessons just to be sure he knows what he is doing before he gets to confident.
His first day of lessons was today. He is pictured above with his teacher Ms. McKenzie. She is a really sweet teacher who seems to know a lot about swimming.
They went over kicking...
And ice cream scoops (arm strokes)
And floating on your back...
And even being comfortable with your face in the water.
At the end of the class they moved to another area of the pool to play a game. It seems like Brady is going to get a lot out of his lessons. We are so glad he is able to work at something he can be proud of. It's usually him having to sit on the side and watch Bubba do stuff like this, but not anymore!
