Does anything quite say summer like swimming lessons? We have finally gotten Maggie into lessons at the YMCA and she LOVES it. She has no problem now getting her face wet and just loves every. single. second of her time in the pool. She is learning the basics of the front crawl and back stroke. After lessons are over, she has to show me how she can swim to various parts of the pool. This is the hard part of it, because with Rocky working Saturdays, I’ve got both girls in the pool and it’s so hard to give Maggie the attention she needs and keep a hold of Jessie when all she wants to do is get out. Jessie is in lessons too, though her lessons are more about getting the kids used to being in the water and an introduction to blowing bubbles, jumping in and a little bit of kicking. She might be just a bit young for it, but she’ll be in it next year (you have to be 3 to be in the class Maggie’s in) and will really get a lot out of it then.
