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!
