After trying very hard to climb out of the pool, Eliel finally did it today and earned himself a red wristband, his favorite color!  This means that he can now float on his back, go underwater for at least 5 seconds and jump in and climb out all by himself.  He's super safe in and near water!  The skills on his red wristband will include learning to front and back float without assistance, rolling from front to back float and jumping in to a back float. 

He was elated about it (and so are we)!
