Swim Lessons

Two weeks ago Mary Pat started swimming lessons! She loves the water and has been doing great in the classes with Daddy. Most of the kids in the class are older (2-3) except for Mary Pat and a six month old little boy. She is one of the only ones who doesn't cry at all! So far her favorite things are kicking her feet while on her back, watching Daddy blow bubbles (and trying to blow some of her own), and staring at all of the other kids of course! She also has enjoyed being dunked and liked "jumping" off the side this past weekend. The class continues for four more weeks so I'm sure there will be more pictures to follow!

This is SO MUCH FUN!
Trying to blow bubbles like Daddy (and mostly swallowing water)

Enough pictures Mom.

Coming from someone who was pulled off a pool floor as a child and then forced into swimming lessons the next week, I'm glad you're getting her used to the water so young! Looks like her and Chaz love it. Another great result of the lesson is that she already has one of her ND graduations requirements complete now.
