In the land of 10,000 lakes it’s pretty much a given that most kids go through swimming lessons at one point in their life.
We not only want him to learn how to swim, but we also want to make sure that he always feels comfortable in the water.
We’ve all seen it…that five year old in swimming class standing at the pool edge and screaming bloody murder because he is scared stiff to stick his big toe in the water…
The pictures aren’t the best as they were taken from Casey’s iPhone instead of our regular camera, and Gavin looks concerned, but I promise that he had an absolute blast!
From the second we got into the water, and even towards the end when he was cold and shivering, he had a huge grin on his face…he even laughed after we did some bobs and he went all the way under!
Swimming is a great aerobic exercise for anyone, especially for those with Cystic Fibrosis…maybe we’re creating another Michael Phelps? :)
I’m surprised that no one commented on his ridiculously pruned fingers & toes…another annoyance of CF…but it didn’t seem to bother him! So I guess…who cares!
Five more fun Thursday classes to go!
