Thanks everyone! I think I am overthinking the entire thing- anxious and overprotective mommy! I had thought about just bringing him home and cleaning him up, but wasn't sure how if at all it would effect anything. I do not want the swimming to be counterproductive. Another thing that concerned me was the temperatures outside- it can get pretty cold here in PA! Either way I guess I won't know until we try. I think I will start him in the fall classes.
Glori- I actually use the term "lotions" very loosely! We actually do not put lotion on him unless we are in a pickle. Right now we use Emu oil and aquaphor after a bath with emu soap (and lots of bubbles for fun and distrations). I think his skin looks great, I just wish that crazy itch would go away!
Any other input is great and always helpful! Thanks again guys!
