It was miss Viv’s first swimming class today. She’s is a seahorse at a le petit dauphin, which is a salt water pool in Beaverton. They usually wait until they are 16 weeks, but I mentioned she’s good in the water/bath and I was a water baby too, so they let me start her a few weeks earlier.
She had an absolute blast! At first she was just looking around trying to figure out what was going on, but then she was giggling and wiggling about. She went under the water about a dozen times and only squeaked a little once, towards the end of the lesson. We ended up hanging in the pool for another 5/10 mins after class floating on her back. She likes that she can see me and had a big smile.
The class uses songs (10 Little Monkeys, Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, London Bridges, Ol’ McDonald, Wheels on the Bus and more) with water games to teach the kids to swim. She’s got 9 more classes and we’ll see how she’s digging it.
I’ll get pictures next time when John comes with too.
