Swimming graduates

One reason I like to go to Psalmond Road Pool for swim lessons is that graduation day, the eighth and final day of class, consists of about 5 minutes of a swim lesson and 45 minutes of partying on the water slides. Small kids normally can't go down the slides but for swim lesson graduation they put a small army of lifeguards at the bottom of one slide and let you have fun. Hard not to love swim lessons when you get to do this

The easy-does-it pace of the Red-Cross-certified swim lessons seems to suit our sometimes sensitive children. And by the end of two weeks, Will was accomplishing a crude crawl, attempting side breathing and all. Here, Owen and I marvel at big brother's swimming.
