Swimming Lessons

So this year, we decided to enroll my Turdy into swimming lessons on Foster.  We did these same lessons 2 years ago when he was just 9 months old.  We only skipped last year because we were going to be gone on our annual trip to Tokyo.  I’m so glad we did it again because this little man hates baths or showers!  He can’t stand to have his head under the water!  But by the end of week 1 of lessons he was fine with it.  At least at the pool!  Showers and baths are still a little difficult but we’re working on it.  One step at a time!  For God’s sake, potty training is all he can handle right now!

These pictures were taken during the 2nd week of lessons where apparently he was very comfortable swimming on his own and jumping on his own!

Look at my happy little fish!

We had to get out of the pool for a little bit for Adult Swim but we had time to take some really yummy sunny pictures:DSC_0046

This is his Kissy Face that he makes so the water doesn't go in his mouth.  I should say Fishy Face!

It was a fun 2 weeks of lessons.  I’m looking into swimming lessons off base all year round!  Gotta keep him liking the water!

    Hey, there s a pool right by the dojo that does lesson year round. I have known a couple people who have put their American kids in it, but they may have been half Japanese. Ask Christina about it. It literally shares a parking lot with the dojo. Heated indoor pool!
