Progress with Will does not follow a linear progression...it is full of starts and stops, ups and downs, hills and valleys. The last couple swim lessons have been lows...but today was a HIGH! .
There was definitely progress!! Will got his face wet multiple times, was more relaxed in the "float" (head still doesn't go back), and went under the water (with help from Coach Ayla!). He came up sputtering...but then a smile with his accomplishment! .
Thank you @aquatotsballantyne @aquatotsswimschool for supporting and encouraging Will when he is an unwilling participant; and celebrating his small successes along the way! Coach Ayla has an unwavering patience, smile, and trust. Will is no doubt moving forward because of their special bond. .
