The boys have come a long way since they started at Goldfish Swim School last September. With Tucker’s third birthday right around the corner, he was officially promoted to the Junior Level 1 last week. I can’t even begin to tell you how excited he was to be swimming in the same class as his brother now. The change came at the perfect time because I think he was getting a little too confident in the water with me by my side and would start trying to take off without me, despite the fact that he still doesn’t quite have the ability to swim by himself yet.
Watching the two of them together couldn’t bring me more joy, not to mention I don’t mind not having to get in the pool every week now since Tucker always did a great job of making sure I was soaking wet by the end of class. I do miss having the one on one time with him in the pool but I know he needs to have the confidence to swim on his own without me by his side all the time.
He’s still a pro at his sea otter float and Mikey has mastered the crab walk along the edge of the pool. They still have a long way to go before I would trust them without some kind of floaties in the pool but I love watching how proud they are when they accomplish something new and overcome their fears of putting their faces in the water.
And you gotta admit, they both look pretty stinking cute in their goggles.
Along with the move to the older class, Tucker also received a birthday card in the mail from Goldfish which was good for $1 at the Snack Shack. He couldn’t wait to spend it and picked out some yummy fruit snacks after class.
