Palmer had his first swimming lesson at the fitness center yesterday. It was also the first time we have taken him swimming. We've tried other times, but it just hasn't worked out when we all could go, and both Greg and I wanted to be there the first time. Palmer wasn't too happy at the beginning when we were covering techniques, i.e. holding the baby in his back to simulate floating and dunking the baby under water. He held tight to Mom and Dad, and cried and fussed a little bit, as did most of the babes there. But he was overjoyed during the second half of the class when we played water games and sang songs while playing in the water. He was all fun and smiles! It was too cute. We have a few more classes in the next month and will be sure to be hitting the pool as a family just for fun throughout the summer.
