Swimming Lessons

We finally started swimming lessons this past Saturday!
Chloe was immediately interested when we got to the pool. She saw water and other kids, some of her favorite things! As you can tell, Connor's just along for the ride. To tell you the truth, they both were ready for a nap!

We each grabbed a baby and got in the pool!

Now, of course the babies aren't going to be learning how to swim at this age. Having babies in swim lessons is supposed to teach them confidence in the water so they won't be scared or cry if we take them to a pool or the lake. They'll learn more and more by taking classes each year.

It was good for David and me also because we learned a few of the popular nursery rhymes that we've been singing the wrong words to, like The Wheels on the Bus, and Itsy Bitsy Spider. As we sing these songs, at certain parts we do different things in the water, like getting their mouths closer and closer to the water so they start to learn to blow bubbles. We didn't actually dunk the babies under water yet. I was too scared.

We all had fun and it was a good family activity for us! We're so excited that we have 6 more weeks of classes!
