ex machina

the eric update - day 1857: almost the end of swimming lessons.

it's that time of the year again. the waning dog days of summer, marked by The Ending of Things such as summer swimming lessons.

while swimming lessons last year were mostly about getting comfortable in the water, this year focused more on "technicals" such as "step in chest deep water, move front float 5-seconds, roll to back float, return to standing position, back floar for 5-seconds and return to standing position. SIR!

and while he's practicing with the body board in this picture, he's mastered some basic swimming strokes ( i.e. the doggy paddle ) without a life vest!

all in all, much progress was made this summer with swimming skills.

Nice work Odin! I am wondering when I can relearn how to swim when my son is ready for swimming lessons!

"it is hard to be brave," said piglet, sniffing slightly, "when you're only a Very Small Animal." rabbit, who had begun to write very busily, looked up and said: "it is because you are a very small animal that you will be Useful in the adventure before us."

this site chronicles the continuing adventures of my son, odin, who was unexpectedly born on the fourth of july at 25 weeks gestation, weighing 1 pound 7 ounces.

he's quite a fighter and you can always send him a postcard to the most current address listed here if you're inspired by his adventures. see the postcard project/google maps mashup to see a map of the postcards.

if you're new, you can browse the archives to catch up. and don't forget to watch a few movies that i made while we were in the neonatal intensive care unit. or if you want the abridged version and you can find a copy, you can read about his adventures in the november 2005 issue of parents magazine.
