Jacob has been taking swimming lessons since October. We went swimming last night and I was amazed at his progress. He can now float on his front and back unassisted, swim underwater about 4 feet and do the front crawl for about 2 feet. I cringe when he jumps in the pool and lands on his stomach. He loves it though and will use his momentum to swim underwater a couple of feet before coming up to the top to look for someone to grab and get air. He seems to have natural athletic ability. I never had natural talent and always had to work hard at sports so it is fun to watch him excel at it. It won't be long before Jacob is swimming laps and passing the deep water test.
