Swimming Lessons

Noah has finished his summer swimming lessons at the YMCA, and he made huge progress in his swimming this summer!  He started the summer wanting to use his "floatie" all the time and not having much confidence about his swimming abilities.  

After 8 lessons, he ended the summer being able to swim at least 15 feet by himself, float on his stomach for about 20 seconds, and jump in and swim without a floatie.  More importantly, he learned to have fun in the pool and just goof around without the floatie and enjoy being in the water.
Noah and his swimming teacher, Christine, are in the front of this picture.  There's a water exercise class going on behind them.
