Swim Class

Michael began swim lessons in the summer and is doing very well in such a short time.  He is now able to kick and beginning to paddle.  His comfort level with floating on his back is improving each week. The biggest improvement is going under water - since the first time, he has never taken in water, so we know he is holding his breath...but he used to cry each time he came out of water.  Now, Michael is closing his eyes and holding his breath on the count of 3 without having to blow in his face, and coming out of the water without crying!  He loves it:)

So it sounds like Michael is doing a lot more actual swimming in his swimming class than Ben is. Looks like he's learning a ton!
