It's swim lesson season again.
Gabriel's a goldfish.
That's the name of his class level, although he is a golden little fish.
He's already starting to turn lovely toasty brown.
His hair is whitening up in the sunshine.
He's both the youngest and the smallest kid in his class. He can't quite stand up in their designated part of the pool. He has to hop around on his tippy toes when it's not his turn to practice his pizza arms or his ice cream scoopers or his superman glides.
He can't swim, exactly, but he can drown in a direction.
Plus he looks darn cute in his goggles.
