Swim Lessons

At the beginning of May, Lochlan started going to swim lessons- the "Mom and Tot" class, so I get to paddle around with him. It's pretty much just singing funny songs and making them kick their feet, getting them used to swimming. Fun stuff. He is just finishing up his second month and LOVING it! Lochlan has always loved the water, and living in Florida, I think it is so important the kids learn to swim as soon as possible because there is water EVERYWHERE. We have really enjoyed going to swim lessons twice a week at the Palm Bay Aquatic Center. His favorite part by far is the free time at the end when he can go down the slide. On Wednesday, the instructor and one of the lifeguards there took pictures of all the little ones as they went under water. I think this shot is so funny because most kids keep their eyes open...but Lochlan closes his eyes and holds his breath before he goes all the way under! Always so aware of his surroundings. So here is a picture of Lochlan paddling around in the pool.

ADORABLE!!! We haven't seen pics of Lochlan in FOREVER...we miss him! We were just talking about how we want to get Lili together with him to see how they interact now. :)

Sounds like fun! I want to get Addy into swim lessons sometime. Jealous of your underwater camera!

I love those underwater pictures they take of the babies... So cute! I love Lochlan-- what a great kid! Speaking of Lochlan, in Sacrament Meeting, Drew looked at Lochlan and smiled. I said, "Do you see Lochlan, Drew?" He smiled again and repeated, "Wach'an!" :)
