We have spent a fair amount of time "swimming" with Mitchell at the pool at Gma and Gpa W's neighborhood, but Mitchell doesn't really swim. He just plays in the water. We just signed him up for swim lessons at the local YMCA, and his first one was today.
Here is Mitchell waiting for class to start.
There are seven little ones in his "Pike" class. They have to take turns with the teacher.
They each got to use the kickboard on their bellies, then they got another turn hugging the board and laying on their backs. Then, they did "monkey arms" on their bellies and then on thier backs.
Mitchell seemed to be sharing confidences with his neighbor.
Mitchell liked the forward monkey arms.
He even got some "blowing bubbles" going at the same time as monkey arms.
