Christian Becomes an Octopus!

We are so proud to share that today, Christian was promoted to the next level of swimming lessons! He is now an Octopus!!

During today's lesson, I noticed the admin guy watching Christian swim the length of the pool, and write some things down. He then went to his station and wrote more down ... and I was getting excited!

A few minutes later, he came out to tell me Christian had been promoted. He is still working on one of his skills, but his instructor didn't want to hold him back. So next week, he starts with a new person ... this time, his instructor is a man. He's only had a male instructor one other time - when he was taking a makeup class a while back. And Christian did really well with him, so we'll see ... maybe it is even the same guy!

One of the things he'll learn as an Octopus is how to swim and simply move his head to the side to take a breath, rather than completely rolling onto his back as he has been taught.

We're so excited!!!
