History Was Made Today

I know I just wrote about Lucas’s swimming lessons earlier today, but this afternoon, after the very last lesson, when we were swimming for fun in the 3-foot-deep pool, HE SWAM!

Breath held. Check
Face in water. Check
Arms paddling. Check
Legs kicking. Check

Successful attempts: many
Distance traveled: 1-2.5 feet
Celebration method: clapping, shouting, jumping up and down (mommy); smiling ear-to-ear (Lucas)
Witnesses: Ripley, Roco, their parents, Natalie the swimming teacher
5-star, surprise bonus: Ian showed up moments later and got to witness the feat of swimming excellence in person, and thus revel in Lucas’s glory.
Conclusion: Awesome

    I’m so impressed, and it sounds like things are going to go so well with your waterbaby!
    I’m really glad Ian was there to witness it, second-hand moments like those aren’t as good as in person. I hope Lucas keeps up the good work!
