Cole started his first swim lessons last week and did great!! I had been prepared by several friends to expect a lot of crying, etc... He did none of that (well until yesterday but I hope that was just a fluke). He has been sitting on the step like they ask him to until his turn which really surprised me. I can see why it is better to have someone else teach instead of the parent because I know he would not listen to me if I asked him to sit on the step and wait. At the end of each class the kids get to pick out a treat which I think is a big incentive! I am hoping we will be able to continue with the classes and make him an expert swimmer this summer!
