I decided to get my certification with Boogs. We studied the course material for over a week before we attended two half days of classroom and two half days of pool class. Boogs did an excellent job paying attention during class. At the end of the two days, there was a 50 question final exam. Boogs took the exam on his own without any help and he scored 94. His score was higher than some of the adults in the classroom. (I scored 96).
We had a good time in the pool practicing our skills. Boogs had a hard time lifting the tank so he had to have help doing his giant stride into the pool.
We found a wet suit that actually fit for Boogs to wear on the open water dives.
This past weekend we went to Aquarena Springs for Boogs to try his open water dives again. He did two dives on Friday and two dives on Sunday. He passed! There are now three certified SCUBA divers in our family. My husband is certified to dive to 130 feet, I am certified to dive to 60 feet, and Boogs is certified to dive to 40 feet.
Daddy held onto his gauge like a leash while Boogs was making sure his BCD was properly buckled.
