Swimming Rod

Like every mom does during summer vacation, I took Rod for swimming lessons at his daycare.

Rod however chose to show his displeasure through peaceful protest.

Rod did finally get used to the water, though it was done begrudgingly.

So proud of my little swimmer!

He still hates bathtime, though.
