Finally found his fins

We have a swimmer on our hands! It has been amazing to see the complete transformation in Carter during his two weeks of swim lessons. He was a kid who was very timid in the water, avoided getting his face wet and pretty much just like to splash around in the shallow end. But we were persistent with him and continued taking him swimming most weekends...and it was SO worth it to see him flourish during his lessons. He was in a pre 1/2 class with three other kids and loved it. By the end of the first day, he was jumping around, dunking his head and seemed 100% comfortable in the water. By the end of the session, he was fully swimming and it was amazing to see. We couldn't be more proud of him and the progress that he's made.

This was the first day - still trying to keep his head above water most of the time.

But he was willing to do this...

Getting ready to swim

Diving in, great form, kicking those legs. Way to go, Carter!
