Mothers day this year was a good day.  Strider stayed at home while I went out with nom. After i got home we spent some time at the local beach/park

     We went swimming again this time with a life vest and he did much better today, even let himself float some!!!!I am so vry proud of him we hd an amazing time!


Strider of coarse was his silly and playful self. he seemed to be ok in the water but it wasnt favourite thing. He much more enjoyed exploring and  hill climbing

Saterday- Striders first swim

 Today Strider did so so in training class, after class we had a bit of a busy relaxing day, hard to explain, but in the evening we went to the beach and took him for his first swim! it was almost magical for me, though he seemed rather unimpressed with this large body of water.  still he went in with nim with out an issue  and swam a bit, we only stayed a few minutes and he seemed pretty hesitant to become boyant but  time will hopefully help him get more accustomed to swimming :) Still over all we had a really great day!
