Splish, Splash! Owen's Swim Lessons

Owen loves the water.  Last year, I took him to the pool during the day and he would have a ball.  He would go down the little slide and also jump to me off the side of the pool.  We figured it was time to put him in swim lessons.  They offer classes at our Y, so we thought it would be perfect.  Several of his friends would be in the class, so we thought he would enjoy it a lot.  We signed him up for the 3-5 year old class.  I should have known that was the wrong class when they asked me if he could already swim when I was signing him up.  Maybe I am a little slow being sleep deprived and all, but I thought the whole point of swim lessons was to learn how to swim!  Lol!  Needless-to-say, everyone in the class was really advanced and since I was not allowed in the water with him, it was not a good fit for him.  They had another class that meets a little earlier on Saturdays, so we switched him to that one.  He loves it.  I can get in the water with him and he is really getting comfortable in the water.  His friend Sophia is in there too, so that makes it more fun.  Last week, Brent joined us and got in the pool with him.  Glad our little guy is having fun.

Owen, you make it look soooo easy out there in the pool. Maybe once you learn you can teach Papa, Lol.

Keep up the hard work.
