Declan had his first swimming lesson this morning. Guess who was much more nervous than he was? (ME!)
But he did great. OK, he was a little nervous too, but the instructor was great and coerced him into the water pretty easily. I was seriously impressed at how he handled the kids. I guess that’s why he is the teacher.
And of course, I was totally Annoying Mom and had both the video and still camera aimed at my son the whole time. I am sure there are other moms who are making fun of me on their blogs this very minute.

Solo on his noodle – rock on, dude.
I have to admit this meant more to me than I thought it would. My parents were very much into sailing when I was a child and we were always out on the water in Maryland – I knew how to swim pretty much before I could walk. I took lessons all throughout my youth. So it definitely gave me the warm fuzzies watching my monkey out there. Sniff sniff.
Rock on Declan
BTW-how old is that instructor? 12? LOL!
no kidding! And he was like 5’1″ too!
But he was awesome!
Wow, GO D! Nice pictures.
For some reason your blog doesn’t update in my RSS reader thing.
Hmmm.I wonder why. Thanks for the heads up, G-Man. I will check into that.
That is just adorable! Go Dex!
