Swimming Lessons


First full class of swimming this morning started off great (well behaved and good waiting). Funny thing, the kid that was a bit of a bully to my son in school last year ended up being in the same swimming class. As they started swimming across the pool my little guy was ahead of the bully. I found myself quietly cheering and wanting my little guy to race the bully and at one point felt like I was about to scream at the top of my lungs (I held back of course). Then the proud dad moment happened and sure enough my little guy got to the other side first!!!
Of course there were moments throughout the class where my son would not pay attention and do his own thing but I have come to accept this and be more patient than I used to be. Every small victory that comes along I treat it as a major one so this ended up being one of those great moments to be proud of.
The end result was a fun time for my son and daughter and a little proud moment for daddy so all in all it was a great start to the day. Next up golf for me, birthday party for the kids and I tomorrow, and Monday will be the first Beavers class!!
