On the last day of swim lessons they turn on all the fun stuff and let the kids play. Here, Aidan is going down the blue slide all by himself. These are things the kids would not get to do on a regular day at the pool because they can't really swim well. You can imagine the excitement despite the times of pouring down rain!
Ever since last year when he was too scared to jump off the diving board, Aidan has been telling us that he is going to jump this year. His plan is to be able to jump off the two-story dock at Grandma and Grandpa's house like his cousins do. He said he is going to jump off the diving board on the last day of swim lessons and then jump off the dock next. This is terrifying for me! Well, they walk over to the diving boards and he goes straight up the high dive ladder. The head lifeguard covers her face and says, "what level is he?!" Aidan's teacher is in the water and said, "he is one of my Level 1/2 kids! I will watch him!" He proceeds to jump in, head like a bullet deep into the water, and pop right out! Aidan, said "did you see that?! Are we going to Grove this afternoon to jump off the dock?!" Ummm, no we are not!
