From Daddy: About three weeks ago, Robert talked about wanting to learn to play the tuba.

Today, as Mommy was driving us to swimming, we asked if he still wanted to learn to play the tuba. He said no.

“No?”

“No. I want to learn to play the flute,” to which Mommy nodded, “and the horn and the trumpet and a tuba.” Wow.

“The whole wind section,” I mused.

His teacher looked over told me that his breath control was getting very good. I remarked that his up-faces were improving as well!

Then, to reposition him to the other island, his teacher asked him to traverse to the other side without floaties at all. Watch him:
