We started mommy and me with the boys when Jbird was barely a year old and they loved it. After our trip to Cancun, Mexico it solidified the fact that the boys were really into water and swimming as you can see in our Cancun trip part 1 and part 2. At this point we decided to get the big boys in swim lessons regularly. They swim once a week for half an hour. There are 8 levels total, Tman is on level 5 and Jbird is on level 2.
We started swimming consistently with Tman in March of 2015, check him out during his first swimming class. Tman loved it but Jbird was not loving it at all. We held of with Jbird until he was older. The boys are doing so well now and are both loving the classes.
Check them out swimming like pros in this video I compiled, I am so proud of my big boys. Isn't it so nice to actually see them in action? Jbird is way more comfortable now and check out Tman floating on his back and doing his backstroke. We have some future Michael Phelps on our hands over here ;).
Swim lessons are going really well for my big boys. I am so happy that they are loving the water as much as I did growing up. I want them to be great swimmer and be comfortable in the water because it's such a great survival skill to have. If they really love it and want to do it competitively, I will be there to support of course but that's a problem for another day ;). Do your kids swim? Do you want them to learn?
