After we joined the YMCA a few weeks ago, Ben and I agreed that we should sign Zach up for swim lessons. Although he is a pretty good swimmer, we wanted him to gain a little more confidence in the water and be able to pass the swim test so he can go down the indoor waterslides.
He has had a complete blast over the past three weeks and looks forward to his lessons every Thursday morning. Today he earned his blue wristband (enabling him to swim alone in the shallow part of the pool) and will begin work on his pink wristband (the elusive water-slide-enabling wristband) next week.
He already can't wait!
