Sink or Swim

Christian's now in swim lessons.
It has been an anticipated day since he watched Ava throughout her last session.
He watched her cry.
He said, "You can do it" and "Good Job" with a little brother thumbs up.
He nearly fell/jumped in the pool on a regular basis.
He knew his turn was coming when he was almost 3.
So the time came.
First lesson: Super excited.
No tears, despite his 3 classmates screams...
until the 2nd lesson. Now, instead of 3 screaming kids, there are 4.
For about the first 2-5 minutes then he calms down and rather enjoys himself.
It is weird, I don't get it. Oh well, it'll pass (after many torturous days of throwing him in the pool). Ava, on the other hand is swimming like a champ. Who would have known that last session she was just like Christian's class.

Thanks for the pictures Alie!

You should feel good knowing he is doing so much better than Charlie, even though Christian is so much younger. I'm so excited for Mia to get promoted to level 2! I love that he used to cheer for Ava. He's the world's sweetest boy.
