I'm a fish!
last summer, william started swimming with a program called ISR. they teach kids as young as 6 months how to survive if they were to fall into the water. he learned their "swim, float, swim" sequence....how to float in order to breathe and then swim towards the wall/ladder/steps/dock/whatever, float, swim, etc. you get the picture. anyway, he has been doing the winter refresher course this week, and he apparently still remembers how to do it. he really enjoys it. once we got past the first 2 weeks last summer of screaming like a wild monkey, he's been great. he loves going to the pool. he gets in and floats and jokes around with miss jala. it's really amazing to see my child do this. she can throw him backwards in a flip, and he'll just pop right up to a floating position. the first time you see your kid do this, it's just a total "wow" moment! i've tried to post a video below of him swimming (1st video...not sure what i'm doing). maybe you can see it.
