We enrolled Davis in parent-child swim lessons this summer, and he finished today! The class was 4 days a week for 2 weeks. Overall he did really well, but he was timid of the water, especially at first. Todd was able to come with us for the first 2 classes, which helped!! My mother-in-law and sister-in-law also came for one of the days, and took the pictures of Davis and I – thank you, Abbie!
Davis’ favorite parts were playing with the toys, watching the other kids, laughing at me blowing bubbles in the water, participating in singing (him listening) the songs, and learning how to get out of the pool. “Elbow, elbow, tummy, knee, knee” was repeated many times the last two weeks!
I hope to keep him in swim lessons each summer, and maybe even in an indoor pool during the cooler months. He may not learn to swim for a couple more years, but getting used to the water and learning water safety is important to us! Even with the chilly water temperatures early in the morning, I’m happy we took these swim lessons!
