Homeschool Gym and Swim at the YMCA

Spawn just completed his first 6 week course at the YMCA yesterday. His instructors, Miss Donna, Mr. Bob, and Miss Joanne, have worked wonders in just six weeks! Until six weeks ago, going swimming consisted of Spawn clinging for dear life to CS Dad and I until we'd been in the water a good half hour. Then he might let us push him back and forth between us for ten minutes. Yesterday, he jumped in the water unassisted, doggie-paddled (with the assistance of a 3 bubble water walking belt), floated on his back, and he even swam to the deep end of the pool! He was the last one out of the water and he had to be talked out! LOL!

We are so fortunate to have a YMCA that supports the home- and cyber-schooling families in our community. Friday afternoon gym and swim class is going to be a staple of Spawn's physical education for a long time to come. I'm so pleased with his progress and the loving care of his instructors. He's even asking to sign up for a second swimming class each week. How can I say no to that request? :D
