today was Owen's first day of swim lessons. we had a bit of unlocking of little hands clenching my shirt and leg, but after the instructor was able to get him in the water, he calmed down. it was a bit of an interesting experience: the head guy calls his name, your instructor Scott comes into the grandstand and drags your child off, and into the pool they go. you can hear occasional crying or screaming, me hoping that Owen isnt the one doing the screaming.... but then it's all smiles on the walk back to the stands to meet the parents. on the way out he said he had a great time, but that he "might cry tomorrow though".
