IJ took swim lessons the last two weeks of July. They were 30 minutes each, Monday through Thursday and located at his school's indoor or outdoor pool depending on the weather. He started off refusing to blow bubbles in the water or put his head under and by the last few days was "swimming" under water short distances and putting his head under just for fun. He definitely needs more lessons but I'm going to wait till next summer. ZJ and I did not enjoy ourselves out in the heat watching IJ swim at 3 pm each day.
