After the brutal start our weekend got off to, Saturday morning dawned with everyone healthy. The sickness ended just in time too, because on Saturday the boys got to start swimming lessons! I had been pumping them up for it all week, even telling them that Mommy and Daddy wouldn’t be getting into the water with them. By the time we got to the pool, they were beyond excited.
We had a minor issue when the boys’ instructor came to get them and she led them to a different part of the pool… Chase had been eying the lazy river area and wanted to go there, but that’s not where his lesson was happening. Oh the drama. We finally had to just force him into the arms of the instructor and he was fine within a matter of seconds.
Yep, the boys are the class. The place we’re taking lessons at caps this age group (and a few years older) at 3 per class! During the lesson, the swim director came over and talked to Nick and me, and she told me they’re willing to open up new classes for the boys so that they can stay together in the future. I thought that was so nice of her! I only snapped a few pics of the actual lesson, because Nick and I didn’t want to hover and the chairs for parents were at the other side of the pool. However, when I was told the boys would be ending their lesson by going down the big slide, I positioned myself for pictures!
Ty came down first
Then Chase (who we were worried would be too scared to go down – lately he doesn’t even like the slide at Chick Fil A)
And finally, dare devil Jackson!
The only way we could coax the boys out of the pool area was to assure them we would be back many more times in the coming weeks. Needless to say, swimming lessons are a big hit here!
