Swimming Classes

I signed up the kids for swimming classes.  I've thought about it for a while now and I finally bi the bullet and made the eight week commitment.  It's so fun!!!!  Victoria's class is first 6:00-6:30.  She has three boys in her group and they are in the water with the teacher.  One boy isn't a particularly good listener which is very important if you're four years old in the water and you can't swim.  He gets scolded often.  V didn't like this and cried during the first class.  We worked through it and now she wants to please the teacher so much she jumping in the pool going totally under the water.  After every class she talks about swimming like the big kids at Yogi this summer!

Then there's my fearless son.  (And for the record fearless husband who week after week gets in the pool with Christian and the other nine parents, who for the record, are mostly fathers.)
He swims from 6:30-7:00.

He doesn't want to be caught.  He wants to jump in and swim.  He's not quite that capable yet but it won't be long.

Thumbs up!!
My favorite part!

Please get him Mark! is what I screamed here!

He tries to get Mark to not catch him everytime he jumps in.

Swimming toward a floating ball to practice getting his little arms out.

This is the most difficult for him. To relax and balance the rubber duck on his belly.  He wants to sit up but Mark whispers in his ear to make him relax.

It's a wonderful time as a family.
