Jacob started swimming lessons this week, with much resistance I might add. He must have asked me a thousand questions on the drive to the pool. "Am I going to drown? How tight are they going to hold on to me? Will you ask my teacher when the class is going to be over? Are they going to make me go under water? How long is the class? Is 40 minutes long? Is my teacher going to be a boy or girl?" And the list goes on. Poor guy. He was so nervous. Which is part of the reason we wanted to get him started in lessons now. He loves being in the water but has a lot of fears. I really want him to get over some of this fear and eventually learn to swim. Because I know for a fact that we will be at the neighborhood pool ALOT this summer...mamma bear here is gonna be lovin' the pool during the hot, swollen summer months.
Anyway, much to my surprise Jacob was all smiles when he went with his instructor and did great in class.
Help getting in the water
Jacob is the one actually looking and listening to the instructor
Waiting his turn for the kick board
After class he said "That was SO fun". I have hope! :)
On another note, I just couldn't resist this picture of Luke today while we were at Wal-Mart. I recently realized one way to get him to stay seated in the shopping cart is to take the portable DVD player in with us. He sat the entire time, it was wonderful!
Of course he had to have Pups close by while watching Clifford.
