Swim Class






As it turns out, Aidan's swim class was just him and our neighbor's son. They had the teacher, "Miss Kate". You may notice that another class is going on at the same time led by "Miss Nora" (Miss Kate's mom).

They are fantastic teachers, and Aidan has really enjoyed himself. Everyday he has been nervous to start and slow to get into the pool, but once he is in, he has a fabulous time and does a great job of following directions. He even swam underwater for the first time yesterday! YEA, AIDAN!!!! Friday was supposed to be their last class, so they got medals and lollipops. Their Monday class this week was canceled, though, so they actually will still have one more class as a make-up class this coming Monday. If any of you lurkers out there are looking for a great swim class in Austin, please check out Nora Martin's Swim School

Oh, and you have probably noticed the very cool tree house (with slide that you cannot see). This is in the front yard for siblings to play on while their brother or sister has a lesson, or it's there to play on if you get there early. VERY FUN.

Congratulations to Aidan! (And his mom.) Getting over a fear of the water can be such a big hurdle. Its so good to see that Aidan is clearing it so early and so well.

I love the big smile on Aidan's face while he's at his swimming lesson!

Yeah, from smiles on his face once he's in the water, it is hard to believe that he fights so much against going to the class! (he has "resisted" swim class 3 out of the 5 classes so far...very actively "resisted". Oh, well, he enjoys it once he's in and he is learning very good things so it is definitely worth the struggle!

Yes, like many things involving children - worth the struggle!

I love that photo of Aidan with his medal. That expression on his face is just him.
