Swimming lessons

Zane started swimming lessons today.  Always a challenge the first day.  Zane is shy.  He is getting better, but still, he is shy. 

All morning he kept asking what time it was and when do we leave and telling me he was sooooo ready for swimming lessons.  We get there and the brakes screeched on.  Nope.  Not doing it.  No way.  Huh uh.

I got on the step with him, threatened him within an inch of his life, cajoled him.  Finally Zachary got in with him.  Now, Zachary was not in a swimming suit.  But he did it!  He is such a great big brother!

Meanwhile, Zachary, already wet of course, went over and played in the water playground they have at the pool.  Later he told Zane thank you for getting him to get wet!
