We went back to the pool last night, and not only did Nic want to go, he went right in. And he did it without the encouragement of his friends (since it was just us this time around). Not to say we didn't have our own adventures, but at least it looks like we can at least go back.
We had a good time. Now it's off to the autism conference and time for me to relax (ha!). I'll try to post from the conference.
