Charlotte started her very first swim class on Wednesday! And not to be that mom (but I am…), she did SUCH a good job! And by that, I mean that she happily participated, had fun, didn’t cry when the teacher held her and didn’t cry even after being DUNKED under water.
The class is 30 minutes and is intended to teach young tots basic water safety, including, how to exit the pool, the importance of waiting for an “okay” before entering the pool, how to flip to your back instead of panicking, and so on. And the best part, you get to end with a speedy slip down the water slide!
Mark took C and gave her a good old fashion whiplash on the way into the pool… but our little champ didn’t seem to mind too much.
First swim class = success!
Swimming lessons are so important! It’s fun, but it also gives parents a peace of mind where water is concerned. I’m SO glad her first lesson went well! 🙂
