Swimming Lessons 2012

 The first two weeks of June, Andrew and Coleman took swimming lessons at our local college.  They had a great time and learned a lot.  Andrew in particular is swimming like a fish this summer.  Here are some highlights of their lessons. 

The first morning, Jonathan wanted his swimsuit on too, and had a very hard time understanding why he couldn't get in the pool too.  Sometimes it is just hard being the littlest.

The second day of class, Jonathan was much happier to stay upstairs and eat a snack and play.

Here's Coleman on a kickboard.  He improved a ton over last summer.  Now he can actually balance by himself and kick around the pool.  Last summer he flipped over as soon as the instructor turned him loose.

Andrew can swim across the pool, on top of the water, coming up for breaths without stopping.  We're still working on that "shredding" water thing.

Coleman had the best float in his class. 

Here are the boys with their certificates.  Neither one wanted their picture made with their instructor this year. 

We are all looking forward to next summer.  Jonathan will get to take lessons next year too.  That means Mommy will have no one to wrangle upstairs in the balcony!  Yahoo!
