Wrapping up at the pool

Another session of swimming has wrapped up. For Jacob it was an ok session. He learned some things but in the end didn’t really seem to progress. I think we’ll be sending him back to one on one lessons. He gets to distracted having other kids in the class. I know that’s something he’ll have to learn, but with him starting pre-school in January I think we can focus on getting him to be a better swimmer at swim class and for now that means one on one.

As for Violet it was a great session. I’m not sure how long it is till she’ll start taking lessons with a teacher instead of me, for now I intend to enjoy the time I get with my little girl. She wont stay that way long. She’s really liking the pool and will be interesting to see how quickly she learns the skills.

Registration for the winter is in December with classes starting some time in January, I think. So we’ve got a couple of weeks to determine which class Jacob, and what day they will go. Of course a couple of weeks goes by fast, so we’ll problem try to get that sorted out this weekend.

  • I was in swimming lessons when I was little. I think I made it up to "seal" level.

  • Simming is great… I think I was a little rough on Jacob in my post. He did learn some new things. He was better at holding his head underwater by the end of class. He's also floating without being held to. I think I really need to take him for a Father/Son swim to see all he's learned
