So far, our summer has been largely about water. Our first task was to teach Finn how to make it (into the right receptacle, that is, as my last post explains). Our second, how to swim in it (the water, not the receptacle).
On both counts, we’ve had great successes: Finn uses a diaper only at night, and can swim underwater for distances of up to about eight feet. The ocean was a bit rough for a beginning swimmer, but daily dips in our new pool have given him the confidence and practice he needs. By August, he may be quite the little fish!
