We put Rowan in swimming lessons this year, to hopefully get him more comfortable with the water. We don't spend a ton of time at the pool, so I was skeptical about how he would do. Last week was the first week, and he'll be finishing this Friday.
I have to say that he has done quite a bit better than I thought he would! He doesn't seem to be scared of the water. He even jumped off the low diving board twice! But, he DOES have a problem with listening and doing what the instructors ask of him. He is sooo strong willed! We are working on this at home, so hopefully we can make some progress.
Rowan has 2 great instructors! They make lessons so much fun. Kyle, who is also the head lifeguard at the pool, takes a lot of one-on-one time with the kids who need more reassurance. It's nice to see a young guy take so much interest in little kids. Apparently he is also a respite worker for special needs kids!
