One day he just asked me to show him how to doggy-paddle again, I did, he immediately learned, and has been a little fish ever since! He jumps off the deck into the pool, goes underwater, swims around, does somersaults, tricks, and can float. YEAH!
Since swimming had become one of Blake's favorite activities, I signed him up for swim lessons. They were very affordable and taught him some new strokes, how to tread water, and life-float in case of emergency. The lessons were first thing in the morning and lasted 35 minutes, 4 days a week for two weeks. I'm glad we did the session, but wouldn't say he learned that much. I think I could have taught him what he learned from his instructor, but since he had a great time, it was worth it!
