Finn Swims: Also called the "Proud Mom Post"

This summer was a big deal for Finn. He learned to swim. Not perfectly, but it doesn't matter. Finn has always been very cautious around water. OK, that's an understatement. At every lesson he would try to lawyer-talk his way out of every request. It was exhausting for all involved. Thankfully, he had the sweetest, most patient teacher. And the progress from the first lesson to the video below is astonishing. Way to go, Finn!
(And no, that is not my pool...I wish.)

Awesome! Luke still swims with a life vest. With both boys running around the pool all the time, they aren't even allowed on the patio without their life jackets. Peace of mind for me. However, he has discovered how fun it is to jump off the diving board. Super fun for me.

Love it! I will totally feel the same way when Tyler learns to swim. It's been kinda dramatic. Go Finn!!!

Way to go Finn!!! That's really excited that he mastered the water. By the way, you have the cutest hair ever! I love that Pixie, and the mo-hawkish version you had a while back in one of your pictures.
