Keeping Ryan happy...snacks, snacks, snacks
Matthew is loving his goggles. Not much use for them, they are simply a comfort.
Matthew is enjoying swimming lessons. He has really been brave facing his fears with water and I am so happy that he is really trying to learn new things each day. In the car on the drive over he voices some of his fears, but then talks himself out of "sinking to the bottom" or "jumping in the deep end like the big kids". I keep telling him that everything his coaches are teaching him is to help save him so he doesn't sink to the bottom or if he falls in the deep end, being able to swim to the side. The psychological aspect of his brain is sometimes a beast that is hard to tame and we have to be so careful how we word things because if we say the wrong thing.....boyfriend will be right back to sitting on the edge of the pool.
