Waterbaby

Today we finally got to start swim class! The Fall session was sold out so we had to wait a while, and then our 1st class last week was cancelled due to snow. It was a little concerning when I saw some flurries again this morning, but Joseph was really excited to see the snow again.



He even tried to catch some on this tongue!


To say he LOVED swim class is a total understatement. He squealed when he saw the pool, and couldn't wait to jump in. He clapped every time he went underwater, floated on his back, and kept trying to crawl back in every time we tried to teach him how to climb out. And he was truly upset when we finally had to get out. But there's 11 more weeks to look forward to!



The class was held at the aquatic center of American University. If I have any say in the matter, Joseph may very well be going there - it's within walking distance of our house. I'm sure he'd be thrilled....


This is the pool we were in - for two kids! No wonder these classes are pretty expensive. But the 2 1/2 hour nap he took today was almost worth the price alone!
