In the Swim

I took Zane to his lesson at the end of the week. We showed up early and the class got underway late so he had lots of time (and space) to do what he loves best: play in the water! Sometime I drop things and he’ll dive under to retrieve them (a couple feet deep) but this time he mostly swam back and forth. I notice the instructor, after working with him to swim out some distance and back, will often let go of Zane about five feet from the edge and let him work his own way back. He does a fine job now, although often forgets that he has legs to kick with.
