Swim Lessons

James has always loved the water.  Even last summer when he was just a wee-little guy, he LOVED going to the pool and splashing around.

As James is getting older, we decided it was a good time to get him some swim lessons.  We found a local swim school that has classes during the summer once a week for about 12 weeks total.  

About five minutes into our first "test" class - we knew we were going to sign James up for the full schedule as he was having a blast!  He was smiles the whole lesson and he even cried when it was time to get out of the pool!

We just finished James' 4th class and this time I was able to capture some photos and videos while Brian handled the little guy.  

Swim diapers on and ready for class to start!

Floating in the motor-boat.  Helps them practice kicking while moving through the water.

Daddy trying to get James to blow bubbles.  He blows them outside the water, but has not put two and two together to blow them in the water!

practicing his kicking again!

Mommy - why do you keep taking pictures of me??

Sitting on the wall before his jump into the pool.  James is up to THREE seconds of being under the water after a jump and next week, we will try four!

I will try and post some of the video later if I have a chance!
