Earplugs in place, a shark cap on his head
a tentative toe dipped into the cool water.
"I'm not sure I want to do this..."
Big brother mere feet away bobbing in the pool
"This is great!" Climbing out only to jump in again-
Fearless and laughing.
Big breath, try again. Down one step, then another. Look Mom!
A big grin, two thumbs up. One more step. I'm in!
Wait, you want me to swim?
Look to Sam again- kicking across the pool, loving it!
Sliding down the slide, floating on his back, learning strokes.
He's a fish.
Grasp the float and kick across the pool. Hey, not too bad.
Face in the water? I can do that! Blow bubbles- I'm a pro-
This swimming thing's ok.
The diving board?
The diving board???
Maybe next week!
