Jonah started swimming 'lessons' this Thursday, and he had a great time! He met lots of new friends and loved the feel of the cool water during a hot summer day. For the baby class, the instructor is trying to get them to learn how to kick in the water and also to learn that on the count of three, they'll get wet. Jonah liked the Humpty Dumpty exercises the best, where he sits on the side of the pool and 'has a great fall' into the water. I was really surprised that he didn't even mind when I scooped his face underwater for one of the exercises. He seemed to think it was perfectly normal--it didn't even phase him! He was a natural in the water.
I had a great time, too--the class consists of some mommies from church and their babies. After the lesson, we visit with each other and eat lunch together. Jonah and I are looking forward to going again next week.
