Poor Caroline was caught in between. She needed a mom to be in the Mom and Tot class, and her mom was otherwise occupied. I put her in a life jacket at the beginning of each lesson and she just bopped around. All the other moms offered to help her in the class, but she's going through a mamma's girl stage and refused to let them. She still had fun though, since she was able to get into the water and didn't have to watch from the sidelines. And I was able to play with her for a few minutes in the water during free time at the end of the classes.
Look at all those cute little ones!
Breath-holding contest--I'm not teaching them how to drown, I promise :)
Doing a circle dance because they all met their breath-holding goals. Good job kids!
Walking s-l-o-w-l-y like penguins to go down the deep end and jump in.
Austin was the only one to go off the diving board to me each day. Ezra did it once and then not again. I guess they didn't trust me! As soon as class was over, Ezra would go put on a life jacket and jump off the diving board by himself over and over again.
