Aqua Tots

March 22, 2014

We’ve been taking him to the pool since he was 3 months old, (click here for a flash back to Keane’s first trip to the pool) just for a little splash around fun and to get him use to and comfortable with water. Then we joined a mom & baby group, again to increase his water confidence and to get him socializing with other water babies. Now however, Keane has reached a point and an age where he is ready for some f’real swim lessons. He and his little friend Bryson have been doing swim lessons together for just over a month now and they are absolutely loving it. Last week I took my camera along and crept around the pool while Ms. Jackie put the boys through their aquatic paces.

The boys gather poolside and wait for Ms. Jackie’s directions.

Keane was excited to get this lesson started.

Off for a dip.

Some floating practice.

In the next series of photos its looks very much like Ms. Jackie is trying to drown my child, thankfully she wasn’t, but even if she was, Keane was more than happy to go along with the plan.

Someone is very happy and proud of his underwater crawl.

Ms Jackie gives the boys a small egg, which they will eventually dive for, with a tiny surprise inside.

Bryson wanted to see what Keane got in his egg.

But Keane was not sharing this prize.

Bryson’s turn to float and perfect his underwater crawl.

The boys celebrate their progress with a high-five.
