Dolfin Swim School

For several reasons {top 3 being location, location, location}, we recently switched swim schools.  

Weekday evenings are already a hectic time...throw in a swim class that is a 20 minute drive from school in the opposite direction of home, and you have yourself a recipe for the ever-dreaded toddler MELTDOWN

Reid now goes to Dolfin Swim School, and it's right across the street from his school! We've been there for a month now.  It was a little rough at the beginning {= lots of crying}, but he seems to have adjusted like a champ.  

Aunt Jamye was in town during last week's class, and she was gracious enough to be our photographer.   She had to take pictures from the guest waiting area behind a large window, so kudos on a job well done, sis!

 Mr. Samer plays peek-a-boo by bobbing up and down in the water around Big Blue {the big blue float}.  
This is Reid's favorite gesture right now. 
"Where'd he go?"

 Thanks Aunt Jamye!
