First Swimming Lesson at Warm Beach Camp
There were only five kids in their class. I don't have permission to post pictures of his friends, so I won't (I did get the back of the head of one of his classmates that I couldn't resist posting because it shows the three red-heads in class.)
Then Miss Lydia their instructor arrived and she was just wonderful! She was a natural with little kids. She talked about just getting one ear wet. Then the other. Then, what about a nose. She had the kids splash HER. I love the pictures of Mercy really getting into it. I love how Daniel is covering his face in one, too!
Miss Lydia had them do the "motor boat". I was particularly proud of Daniel. He was the second to do it, following the big girl in the class who I was pretty sure had been in swimming classes before. Mercy did it too.
All the way home they talked about how much fun they had and how excited they were for their next lesson.
I love Warm Beach Camp!
