I have been talking to Jake and Landry Grace about our BIG DAY and it is here! Swim lessons with Mrs. Linda start today and will last for 2 weeks. The pictures below are of Jake at 19 months old....he LOVED the water. Last year I attempted to put him in swim lessons and he was petrified. I went and got him finally after 5 minutes of screaming and he has been scared to death of the water ever since. It makes me sad but I am hopeful that in the next 2 weeks Mrs. Linda can work her magic, maybe even a little. LG is going to and will be in the same class and she is totally fine in the water at this point.

Another plus of living in a small town is that our swim lessons are in our neighborhood so the kids are excited about driving the Barbie car to them! Please say a little prayer for Jake....talking about the situation seems to work with him, so I am praying that he will do OK. As of now, he refuses to get into the big pool and is content with playing in baby pools. Yes, that is OK but I just want him to be comfortable in the water and not so scared....we'll see!!

note: he sure does look awfully close to the board but he did not hit it on the way down. Looks as though he did!!
