Over the summer, Ryan had so much fun swimming. He took several weeks of daily lessons with Jan Gooodwin, and made steady and enthusiastic progress. He often continued kicking along with his kickboard back and forth, long after class was over. Kellen was able to touch the bottom in the shallow end of the regular pool, so we didn't have much back-and-forth with the baby pool. It was relaxing to be at the pool with the boys this summer, which was a fabulous and shocking development. We went almost daily, sometimes twice a day, because this was the one place in the world where Ryan had some caution and serious focus. It was really wonderful.
The week the cousins came, Porter joined into the swim lesson fun!
