Let the Swimming Begin!

Today was the first day of swim lessons for the kids. We'll go daily this week and next. Since they are both younger than 4, they each require a parent in the pool with them during class. Jeremy's able to go with me this week, and Mom's coming to swim with us next week (as well as hang out, shop, play and drink wine)

The tot class basically just gets them used to water. This is the class Tessa took last summer. She was hesitant at first today but I reminded her how she had to do all the classes and learn how to swim if she wanted to jump off the diving board on the last day. That motivated her a little and she showed the teacher how she could kick and blow bubbles.

Not surprisingly Charley mostly hated it. It's not accurate to say he cried the WHOLE time but he did a lot of crying. He's just not a water lover, but we're going to stick with lessons. I'll be interested to see if he's still crying at the end of next week.

Down south, Mom took Mark and Bob to their first day of swimming class too. 'Tis the time of year for swimming!
