Will recently started swim lessons again. He had taken a "mommy and me" type swim class a couple of years ago. This is his first class where he is alone in the water. We were worried he would not want to do it because of that, as he always likes to be in contact with you when we take him to the pool, but he took to it like a champ!
I love at the end of this he says "I'm going backwards!". He means that he is swimming away from the group, rather than toward them.
Will LOVES the snow and like most small children, seems to be impervious to the cold. So whenever he can, he gets suited up and plays in the snow that we have outside right now. When it first fell, Carl built him a snow tunnel in our yard. He loved that. At one point, Carl didn't even have an "out" door on the tunnel and Will said he would just crawl through and "bash through" the would-be door. I am amazed that he is fearless in that manner. He has also become more fearless with sledding. Last year he did not want to sled at all, not even down very small hills in the yard (we did take him down a hill once and he did not at all desire to do it again). This year he thought it was a blast and decided he would try a running belly-flop on the sled in the small hill in our yard. Fun stuff! So here are a couple videos and pics for our loved ones. :) **Please forgive the quality of the video, it gets quite degraded in the process of adding it to the blog...something about shrinking the size I think (I don't know much about how it works). :)**
Here he was doing a little digging at our Pastor's house. No, he did not dig that hole/tunnel on his own. :)
Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain. And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible. I therefore so run, not as uncertainly; so fight I, not as one that beateth the air: But I keep under my body and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, whenI have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway. I COR 9: 24-27
