We have noticed that Harvey’s swimming has improved a lot over the past few months. He is definitely loves the water and really enjoys going to the pool. He especially loved it during our winter get away. He is a little TOO confident in water though, which does give us a bit of a concern.
Today at his swim class, Harvey was able to relax and float by himself on his back for over 5 seconds. Yes, 5 seconds may seem minimal but for 31 month old it is pretty impressive. This is a survival skill his teacher is trying to teach as part of her class, but in any case she was impressed and used Harvey for demonstration. l will definitely capture some video when I can next time.
He is also improving his general swim technique such as kicking and arms/head position – here is a recent video we captured.

Again all credit goes to Jaz here – Harvey’s world’s best Daddy. His consistency over the pas 2 years has been great – even on super cold winter mornings and sometime a bit hung over they will still go. The Sunday father and son bonding time has also extended now with a regular morning coffee date afterwards 🙂
