Scott got swim lessons for his birthday. I chose the community center near our house because they were 2 weeks and less expensive.
Other than the first day, he was mostly excited to go. He was usually hesitant until we got there, then went right over and loved it.
Showing Jonah the letters for pool that told us where to go. Jonah was watching the archery class outside the pool.
The first few days that they were practicing kicking on the wall, Scott would come out to his stomach rather than just holding on.
Scott's in the back using the kickboard. He warmed up to being away from the wall and even being on his back. When they jumped in, he would be squatting and holding the instructor's hands, then just plop down.
Jonah entertaining himself during the half hour lessons. I was usually feeding patient Perry his breakfast.
Scott remembered how to spell pool and wrote it out at home.
The last day, they took the kids to the diving board. I was curious to see how Scott would do. The other kids in his class each backed down, then when it was his turn
he cautiously walked down the plank and jumped right in! I was proud of him for being so brave!
His confidence and familiarity with the water improved so much. If it weren't for having to tote all three of them over and back every day, I'd sign him up for more sessions.
Here's a quick video:
