We had a few "firsts" here in Gallitown this week. Zach had his first swimming lesson, Abby had her first Unparented swimming lesson and also her first Gymnastics class!
Zach loved the water and was excited from the minute he got out of the change room. He had no fear (except for jumping in without holding Mum's hands).
Coming up for air after blowing bubbles
Practicing his tummy floats
He was making me laugh so hard, he would stand up on the edge all proud and ready to jump in but then wouldn't do it unless he was holding my hands. Of course, being the good mother that I am, I kept pulling my hands away :)
Abby did great on her own too!
Listening to the teacher
Either learning how to squirt water or singing about a little turtle named Tiny Tim...
She has mastered the art of Splashing
Then on Saturday was Abby's first Gymnastics class, again unparented, but we could watch. She LOVED it! She said her favorite part was the trampoline.
Stretching before they begin
Doing a little jumping
Practicing the "Jump Freeze" (I love how she hop/walks off of the trampoline)
Somersault & Log Roll
Hanging on the rings
Shaking the Sillies Out when they were done
