We went on vacation, and Stephen learned to swim...


video


I recommend watching this without the volume - It is mostly a running commentary from my dad about how to work the camera!


We went to Tucson for 2 weeks, and as we had anticipated, much of our time was spent in the pool. Stephen is a water baby, and always has been, and we were eager to see how much progress he had made since starting Swim Lessons this year. Well, you can see for yourself how far he has come in the video! We still want him to wear the float because while he can kick and paddle, and propel himself, he has not yet mastered floating, or holding his breath reliably. Since we've been home, we have been to the pool at our Y, and Stephen has been much more willing to practice floating, so hopefully he'll master that soon as well!

That's some really great swimming! Natalie just wants to keep her head under water, and we haven't spent enough time on lessons this summer so she's forgotten a lot of what she learned last summer. Go Stephen!
