Time to Swim

I think I was more excited than she was. I signed her up months ago. Last week, we went to Target and got a new swimsuit. We've been talking about swim lessons for weeks, really building it up. This last Tuesday, we headed in to EPT for her first, official swim lesson.

It was a ton of fun! I taught swim lessons for a number of years in my later teens and early twenties, so of course, I want all of our kids to learn how much fun the water can be at a young age. Hands down, teaching swim lessons was my favorite job. It was just a blast to climb in the pool every day with a group of kids and see how excited they got to learn a new skill. I think Grace is just ready to do this too. She was a little apprehensive when we first walked in. It's loud with so may little ones and parents singing and splashing about. Once we got in though, she had a great time kicking, doing the hokey-pokey, and blowing bubbles. The pool was a glorious 86 degrees (the warmest the pool I taught in ever got was 76). It's so much more fun when no one's teeth are chattering!

The last five minutes of class were "hot tub time". Yes! We climbed in, and I thought I was going to have to drag her out. "I need more hot tub. I need more hot tub. I NEED MORE HOT TUB MOM!" Thankfully, she did listen, and we were one of the last ones to leave.

As we were leaving the building, she kept saying, "I need more swim Mom" over and over. I think the first lesson was a success.  Looking forward to the next one tonight!

That is so cute. I'm glad she liked it so much and you two get to spend this time together. I on the other hand, never need more hot tub.
