Thumper’s First Swimming Lesson!

Thanks to Tad being at swim camp – and too exhausted for his regular lesson – a certain little somebody who loves the water got his very first swimming lesson this evening!

Thumper got into the pool and began jumping for sheer joy and sensory overload – which put a smile on pretty much all the adults’ faces.  Fortunately, one of the instructors was nearby to help Thumper up when Rerun tried to “help” his brother and knocked him over.  This did not put a damper on Thumper’s mood, which was a good sign.

The boys’ regular swim instructor and I had a brief chat about Thumper’s communication abilities and his motor skills, and then she got started.  He was almost too happy and giggly to get any real instruction, but he was having a great time and was sad to get out of the pool.

When we can start him with regular lessons full-time, he is sure to be a happy student!
