At first, Katherine eased him in and let him go. His immediate reaction was to swim to the edge of the pool and try to get out. He even made it to the steps a couple of times and climbed out by himself.
After awhile, he got used to swimming, and I think he actually began to enjoy it. Instead of going for the edge of the pool, he swam after the people in the pool.
Here he is with my nephew, Patrick.
Riley is showing off his doggy paddle.
Riley was pretty pooped after swimming for about a half hour.
That was fun!
