Sadie and Wyatt took swim lessons for the very first time this summer in Albany. I didn't really know what to expect and was a bit nervous, especially that Wyatt was going to have a hard time. He has a hard time pretty much every time we take a bath because he HATES getting water in his eyes. So, when they told me they weren't allowed to wear goggles I though "here we go!" However, to my surprise we didn't have any tears!
Sadie did awesome! By the end of two weeks she was floating on her back and tummy, jumping in the pool without being caught, and starting to learn to paddle. I think that she could have done even more if she had been in a more advanced class, but for a first time she did great! At the end of the session they each got a report card. Sadie's instructor, Taylor, wrote Sadie improved quickly and does great in the water. Nice Job!
Wyatt also did a good job although he was far less compliant. He did get his face wet every day and I was happy that the lessons seemed to make him more comfortable in the water. At least we didn't end with him more afraid, right? Wyatt had 2 instructors but the one that he had the majority of the time was Janel. Janel had a very sweet personality and great smile although we had to laugh because she really didn't push Wyatt much. I'm pretty sure that he thought she was the greatest thing ever as she was super silly with him and played with him a lot. Her comments were Wyatt is very smiley and a great listener. He's a great kid!
Cooper, well Cooper is a good sport about just about everything. He hung out with me and Grammy, watched lessons, entertained us, ate snack, and distracted the life guard. We love this kid!!!

Seriously I don't know where all his personality comes from. He is a certified goofball!
