Nitro Swimming

Anne has been bringing Sy to swimming lessons for about 10 weeks now at this place called Nitro Swimming. It is a business pretty much dedicated to swim instruction and competition and Anne seems to like it a lot.

Anyway, I went along once during his first month and he absolutely loved it. He would blow bubbles, stick his head under the water, and basically be as proud as he could possibly be. Me? I was just glad that Sy wasn't afraid of the water! Ever since I dunked him in Georgetown Lake at 4 months old, he has been a little bit squeamish around water so I loved seeing him enjoying himself.

I was doubly proud and happy when Anne showed me this video! He is swimming! The crawl, swimming on his back..... It is a beautiful thing.
