Water Boy . . .

To say Will loves the water is an understatement. Ever since he was born he has always loved baths and it still continues to this day.

When we went to Florida in April, he would jump in the ocean with no fear chasing after Daddy as he went out fishing. He went under a couple times but would pop back up and just smile. My little water boy he is!

We decided this summer we would join the local pool because of this and it would give Will a good place for socializing as well. In the back of my head, I am thinking that Will is going to follow in my foot steps of summers at the pool and joining the swim team. But, for now my dreams can wait and I am just letting my little bubsy enjoy the pool with new friends. We actually got lucky and a couple of his preschool friends have joined as well.

Because we have a little water boy/dare devil on our hands we decided it would be best to get him some swim lessons. There is a local place that holds classes and continues throughout the year which is what I would prefer for him to have. I must say, Will did AMAZING! He was the first to try everything out. Wanted to continue to do it even if the instructor wasn't helping him out. He was also very encouraging to the other 3 children in the class. Telling them "good job, you can do it!" Such a team player. I have to say his one down fall is that he is not the best listener. He would go off on his own to try something the instructor would show them and would not sit with the others.

My thought is that we will let him finish out the class and hopefully get him a round of private lessons and then back to the class format. Although, the class teaches him to listen and patience, I don't want to hold him back from something he enjoys and keeps him safe.

My sweet bubsy can't wait to get into the water! Totally melts my heart. And yes, I am starting to have the thought of, "can I love another one, as much as I love Will."
