Murphy's Swimming Lessons - Video

Back in July we signed Murphy up for swimming lessons with the Morgan Swim School. Last summer he had his first lessons ever with them. And somehow, he got the same instructor again this summer. We were very pleased. Murphy really liked her and I think she's great (Camille). Last year he had to overcome a lot of fear, which took a while. This year, he walked right in, saw Camille, and got right in the water with no hesitation. It was great!

Well, he now loves swimming! He told me the other day that it is his most favorite thing to do. Tom was a swimmer as a kid (I was not) so maybe he'll take after him. He ended up loving it so much that we signed him up for another session. And you wouldn't believe this, but we got Camille again! I don't know if they did that on purpose or if it was just a major coincidence, but either way, we were thrilled.

The Morgan Swim School also specializes in kids with special needs, so I am really hoping that one of these summers I can video Harlie in the pool.

Anyway, here's a video I put together of him learning how to swim. We are so darn proud of him. And we are so happy that he loved it and now loves to swim. Thank you Camille and Morgan Swim School!
