I never learned to swim. I will walk in the shallow area of the pool and also duck my head underwater briefly...a second or two. That's the extent of my swimming. But I love the water and regret that I can't swim. As I watched Owen so bravely do 'the log' on his first day in a deep pool, I was so proud of him. I know he was initially frightened but his instructors were so patient and knowledgeable. Hooray, hooray, for the YWCA in Green Bay. Hali came along because of course she couldn't stay home alone and she layed down on Owen's towel and fell asleep.

Owen bouncing in the water...his feet don't touch the bottom unless he bounces.
We stopped for ice cream after and had fun eating and laughing and talking about the great lesson. Owen was so happy and proud and Hali really, really enjoyed her ice cream.
