Peeing in the pool

This weekend we packed up the kids (and Beanz) and head off to an indoor water park in Niagara Falls.  It wasn’t as new, big, or kid friendly as this one but it was still a lot of fun.  The kids slid, splashed and splished for about 4 hours on and off.  By the end of it they were exhausted.  And I always take that as a good sign.

 Maks has turned into quite a water baby.  He started swimming at eight months and to say he didn’t like it would be an understatement.  He was not a happy camper for his first round of swimming.  But by the time the six weeks were over, he loved it.  So we kept him in swimming.* 

 Now he loves it.  And this weekend proved that.  He didn’t want any help in the pools, he wants to swim and float on his own.**  He hated it if I tried to hold him up even if it was to keep him afloat.  And the odd time that I did let go for a second he really was threading water and attempting to swim. 

 At one point this summer, I really was thinking about taking him out of swimming because I didn’t think that he was learning at all.  But once again, I was proven wrong.  And I am pretty glad about that. 

 *At this point he wasn’t really swimming.  It was more like splashing around and playing with floaties.

 ** He was wearing a life jacket
