Cory had his first swim lesson ever today. I was so proud of him! He was so nervous, he was shaking like a leaf, but he stuck with it. I think most of it was that he didn't know what to expect, and was afraid his instructor was going to dunk him or something - poor guy.
But teacher Andy took everything very slowly and just tried out some different things with early stages of getting his face in, some float on his back time, and toodling around. Cory was still really nervous, so Andy finally gave him a fun ride around the pool on his back, telling him to kick hard to help them go faster. Cory really liked that, and finally relaxed and enjoyed it.
