More Swimming Lessons!

Wyatt had his second swimming class last night. Of course his classes are smack dab in the middle of football playoffs! I don't really care, but Brian goes to the lessons and records the games then goes out of his way to make sure that we don't find out who's winning before we get home!

Wyatt's class this week was a lot of fun to watch. He practiced putting his ears, face and hair in the water and then went under! I expected him to shout "Towel, towel!," which is what he does in the tub or shower, but he didn't even flinch. He also did a really great job holding onto a pool noodle and kicking through the pool. He was told to throw a ball and then swim to it, and every time he got the ball he picked it up and threw it further! He was partnered with his buddy Tyler last night, and while we were all expecting them to goof off, they both did a really good job paying attention and waiting patiently for their turn. He didn't get his second sticker this week, so hopefully next week he will finish up the second level and move to the third because that lessons involves teaching them to float on their backs and yell for help.

All in all, I have to say he loves his swimming classes. He keeps calling the girl his teacher and constantly refers to it as "swimming school." Brian and I have decided to enroll him in pre-school 2 half days a week next year, and we're taking tours of a couple this week. Wyatt is really excited about the idea of going to school. I'll have to record his excitement and show it to him when he's bigger and doesn't want to go. Ha!
