Swimming lessons

Gabe just finished his first session of swimming lessons! He had SUCH a great time! We went to the Plymouth Aquatic Center, which was a lot of fun! We probably should have started Gabe off in Group 1, but we started him in Group 2 instead. He did great, expect for back floating/back stroking, which he needs to work on. So we're hoping Grandma and Grandpa Staude can help him out with that in their pool next week!!?? But he had a marvelous time, which is what really matters. His teacher, Dana, taught the kids how to bob up and down underwater, fetch rings, float on their bellies and backs and jump off the diving board. Gabe even got a cool new set of Ninja Turtle goggles (courtesy of mom) that he LOVES! Now he's like a little fish underwater!! It won't be long before we can't keep up with him, I'm sure!

Tell Gabe we have a set of rings for him to play with in our pool when he comes to stay! Can't wait to see him in his goggles!
