Tonight's picture was taken during the summer of 2007. Mattie was taking swimming lessons and learning to become comfortable in the water. Being in a pool did not come naturally to Mattie, he was cautious and fearful, and refused to get his head wet at all costs. Nonetheless, Mattie was making progress and he could kick up a storm in the water!
