"Can't you just photoshop a few pounds off before you post them?"

We signed Jack up for swim classes at the gym a few weeks ago. He starts in a week or two.

Before taking Jack to the gym we asked June and Gear Daddy if we could bring Jack down to their pool for some open water trials. That way if he freaked out about the water it wouldn't be in the first class. They readily agreed.

Last night Fabulous Babe called and we got the "Thunderbirds are go!" we were hoping for. After we got Jack into his swim diaper and his swimsuit we changed clothes and headed down the street.

I have no idea what we were worried about. Jack took to the water like an otter.

He laughed and grinned and carried on. He threw one of the big inflatable balls. He splashed everywhere. By the time we were winding up I was picking him up and lowering him in a cannonball splash.

Utterly fearless.

I got some good photos that I'll post after a while. (Fabulous Babe has veto rights.) At the end when we pulled him out and wrapped him in a towel he kept looking at the pool with a "Why can't I go back?" look that was heartbreaking.
