Level Four

You advanced to the next level at swim class tonight. From three to four. 




Coach Liz warned us that you may be in level four for more than a year as you learn to focus and mature.

We’re glad to get you away from the little boy you play with during class. 

That is, when you aren’t diving under the water on your own. 

You’re a great swimmer…


But you get distracted easily and when it’s not your turn. You stand on the ledge and dive under the water. You can easily spend half your time under water. Or not paying attention. 

 

You’ve gotten to be so good at swimming because Mommy and Daddy work with you in the pool. 



You also practice in the bathtub. 

Daddy sympathizes deeply when you’re distracted, I too, can get distracted. 

So now you move up a level and you’ll start learning more about swimming. 

The day will come when you’re a better swimmer than Daddy or Mommy. That day isn’t today, so when you’re in the pool alone, you’ll keep wearing your swimmies.
