Last summer our cousin Caleb took swim lessons at our local rec center. I would have loved for Eyan and Caleb to do lessons together, but he did not meet the age requirements. So this year I signed him up immediately...no like literally the sign ups opened at 7:00 am the day after his 3rd birthday and I was there, first in line!
So we ended up missing his first scheduled lesson because we were still in LA coming home from Disneyland, but we made his 2nd by the skin of our teeth. His lesson is from 9:05-9:35...I woke up at 8:39 because of course my kids are going to decide to sleep in when we need to get up and go. Normally we are up at 7:30...yeah an hour later I was busting booty to get out the door and literally I walked in and threw him into the class at 9:05.
His first lesson went well. A friend of mine has a son that also happens to be in the class so Eyan has a friend and he listened to his teacher pretty well. He did however try to tell the teacher that he was going to go play in the little kids area and proceeded to try to swim by himself and went straight under. They grabbed him and he cried for about a second and then all was fine...back to class he went. After the lesson, the teacher told us that he just needs to work on putting his face in the water and blowing bubbles.
Cue lesson two. We were up on time and at the rec early (1st people in our class there)! I really thought this would go well like it did the week before, but Eyan didn't want to participate or listen to his teacher very well. He threw a tantrum, and then another tantrum and then had to take a time out and then jumped in the water, and then it was over. No real swimming stuff happened.
Lets hope lesson 3 goes better next week!
