Welcome to Whit's World

Welcome to the randomness that is my life. You can usually find me wandering around somewhere in my head trying to figure it all out. I blog about the loves of my life, my two boys, our new homeschooling journey, and anything else that moves me. I find that writing is the best therapy. Thanks for stopping by, and Be Blessed!

A Little Boost of Confidence

This one kick-board gave my big boy that little boost of confidence he needed this weekend.  With this one kick-board, he taught himself how to swim!


Things such as this do not always come so easy to my sweet boy.  I didn't know if he was ever going to be able to have shoes with laces at one point; or if the training wheels would ever come off the bike.  Every time, he proves me wrong...I should have seen this coming with the swimming too, but I didn't.

J has always had a slight fear of the water...actually, he pretty much is okay with it, as long as it doesn't end up in his face.  The water, and bright sun (which is a whole other sensory issue we struggle with) combination, can be a gruesome one in his world.  For these reasons, I wasn't sure if swimming was ever going to be something he would really learn how to do well.

This Saturday, we went to the pool with some good friends...they brought J this kick-board.  He hasn't been so excited about anything since Christmas!  I also remembered to go dig the goggles out of the garage so he could see in the water.  Within 15 minutes, he decided he may not need the kick-board...and in 15 more, he was swimming with his face in the water for long stretches at a time!  He taught himself to swim...I was ecstatic for him!  The pride exhuming from him since then has been so wonderful to see.  He is definitely walking a little taller today.

On Saturday, this one kick-board gave my son the ability to find his strength and determination within.  You see, I guess sometimes all we need is just one little boost of confidence.  Whether you are 8 or 30, a little self-belief goes a long way!

Be Blessed, 

Whit

  3. I'd personally inquire why is it that the chinese do better than us in virtually all aspects of schooling accept english than we do? i mean they are doing educate towards the same objective goals with regard to data and facts but why is it they just do better? i might say its simply because the american? school method is especially designed to flip out silly youngsters, period. When you get the likelihood, read "the deliberate dumbing down of america" which explains the reasons behind this phenomnon and why its happening.
