Kick, Kick, Kick!

Tonight was Logan's first swim class of the summer season. We haven't been in a year and Jenn suggested we sign the boys up for another round now that they're older and more mobile. We're going twice a week (Tues/Thurs) after work, which is more often than we wanted to go, but all the once-a-week classes were during the day when we both work! Yet another annoying place that caters to stay at home moms more than working ones. :(

In any case - we had a really nice time and I think Logan's going to like the class much more this time around. We practiced kicking forward and floating on our backs, dipping their faces in the water and doing big round forward swimming arms. Lots of exercises and tons of toys to entice the kids with. The class was nice and small (all boys! Logan, Robert and two others) - and for the first few minutes of class as the teacher was reminding us of the pool rules, both Logan and Robert were content splashing each other wildly in the face. Definitely the class "trouble makers".

Logan clung to me for dear life - which is funny since he can't get enough of water play time or baths at home - wrapping his legs tightly around my waist. But, by the end of the class, he was finally loosening up and actually even trying to kick his legs some on his own which was neat! :)

We were both beat when we got home - he from swim class, me from an early morning con call (which meant dropping Logan off at school by 7:30am - yikes!) and single parenting this week. I can't wait until (late) tomorrow night, when Jon is back home.
