Jacob is now an eel! He passed the pike swimming level to move up to eel. I spoke to his teacher after class. She agreed that Jacob makes us both nervous in the pool and that he needs swimming lessons before he kills himself. Pike is the beginning swimming level for young children. At two different lessons, Jacob was warned that he would go home if he kept swimming away from the teacher and class with his little blue flotation device around his waist! He is very comfortable in the water and can swim for about 4 feet. He has no fear which is a good and bad thing. Especially when he can't touch the bottom! At least I know that he can float until I can jump in if he ever does decide to jump in over his head without an adult in the water.
