First Day of Swimming

Alanna and Asher had their first day of swimming today. They were so cute sitting on the edge of the pool in their little swimming suits. Asher insisted on keeping on his little white shirt.

So first they had them practice moving along the wall with their hands while they were in the water. Asher wouldn't go all the way in. He was the only one who pulled himself along the wall on his waist rather than by his hands. Then they practiced kicking which both kids were good at. Then they practiced some arm movements. The kids did so well. I was worried there was going to be an issue with water in the eyes but they did fine. Actually the worst part was getting out and showered.

On Thursday the instructors are going to split the class. The same level, but I think it's going to be the fearless versus the more cautious. So they may not stay in the same class but at least they will be at the same time, learning similar things.
