It has been approximately 4 months since we started swim lessons with Goldfish Swim School in Macomb, MI. We originally had a blogging contract for 3 months and being our first contract since starting this adventure, we weren’t sure what to expect after the 3 months. Thank God that Goldfish decided to renew our contract! Here’s why…
About 2 months into our lessons, Myles started regress. He would get upset, not listen to prompts or participate in the water. I started to get discouraged too, and thought maybe this wasn’t for us, but decided to stick it out as we “only had a month left”. Man oh man, am I so so glad that we did because what a complete 180 he did within that last month of our first contract! Now he is jumping in on his own and tells me to “go further” when jumping to me! Myles will even participate in the drills with his instructor instead of me or Daddy… totally not like him.
Never did I think this day would come but I can see the difference in his swimming and his confidence inside the pool. However, the greatest part of it all, is that his confidence is growing outside the pool as well. In the tub he now blows bubbles and leans his head back to wash his hair. These are tasks that he had serious issues with before.
Today, Myles received his first progress report today!!!!! He has two tasks that he is still working on and then he will be moved up to the next class!! What an amazing turn around!
I’m now even more excited for our trip to Florida in February because he can swim in the pool and won’t be clinging to our hips the whole time. Don’t get me wrong, he is not swimming on his own yet, but he does have the basic “kick and pull” skills down so with floaties on he would have a BLAST swimming on his own!
