Swim Lessons

Harvey and I began taking swim lessons this spring. Harvey took to the water right away, but he doesn't care much for actually trying to swim or float.

Each week is the same. We mingle and then play ring-around-the-rosie, doing things like putting ears in the water to touching toes in the middle. Then we float on our front and backs, practicing kicking and paddling with our arms. Next the boys Jump from the edge of the pool. Last they have free time with some toys.

Owen and Harvey have a nice time every Saturday though switching back and forth between Jennie and I.

Harvey's all time favorite thing at swimming lessons though is the stairs and the stair rail. He would play there the whole time if I let him.
