Xander has had a hard time learning to swim. It felt like the ah-ha moment was never coming. He enjoys the water, but I'd venture to say that he didn't get the point of it. We're at the end of his second set of private lessons and the difference is astounding.

Today he got to go into the big pool (they have a small, square pool for teaching the young kids in) for the first time.
