(I like the other kids in the background, clearly unaware, unlike J, that they are about to be tortured in some horrible way!!)
Can't see it too well? Here's a little closer:
You could say it went well. You'd think these pictures were from his first lesson. Nope! His last. Miss Erin (with Aqua Babes) definitely earned every penny of the class fee with Mr. J. The strange thing is that he was listening and learning - every day he'd want to 'practice' in the bathtub and didn't cry. He also almost always did what Miss Erin said with the exception of one day - he just cried the whole time and swallowed lots of water. (Yum!)
Miss Erin was very patient with him but also didn't allow him to get away with not doing what he needed to do.
(J having a time out for refusing to complete a task)
Here are a couple of videos. You can see J doing what he's learned but also see him freaking out the whole time. FUN! (When I asked him what was wrong his answer was that he wanted me. Shawn and I tried explaining that I cannot teach him how to swim, but that didn't get through to him I think)
You can also see how patient and just good Erin is at her job.
He's going to go back into level 1 again this summer and hopefully the second time he does better without screaming.
