Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming

Yesterday was Indie’s first swimming lessons.  We had a blast.  He was not afraid of the water at all.  We just walked right into the pool.  It did take him a bit to warm up to having fun though.  He was very very serious at first and clung to me like a like little monkey, but after a few minutes he realized it was like a giant bathtub and he could splash.  And splash he did!

What I discovered about parent and tot swimming classes is that it definitely seems to be a dad thing to do with the kids.  So, it was me and a bunch of guys. Quite funny and very much the opposite of what I expected.  Also, the class is taught by Frank.  Frank is qutie hillarious and I would guess late teens/early twenties.  Also, not afraid of kids at all, he would just take the kiddos and then have them swim back to us. 

I think Indie might be a natural.  He had the kicking down whenever he was going back floats or swimming back and forth between people.  I failed at getting a picture of him this week, but promise to get one of him in his trunks next week!
