kids in doodles: my first day in swimming class

kids in doodles, best things to do this summer, swimming lessons, my favorite things


mum + i were a little bit under the weather which explains why we are posting kids in doodles late this week. i had a burning fever friday night + mum was nursing her aching jaw. anyway, i will tell you all about what seemed to be the culprit for my sickness, my swimming lessons. okay not the swimming lessons, itself, but the excess of it, i guess! here goes…

i started in swimming class last tuesday when mum + i went for an assessment + the swimming coach gave me the go signal Β to enroll in one. mum packed my board shorts from last summer + my floaters, too. water has been one of my absolute faves + i guess it goes without saying that i really had a wonderful time in the water! i never wanted to get out of the pool by the time our class is over! πŸ˜‰

there were about 6 of us in our class, including little danielle, andrea, + jay-jay. on our first day we are taught how to paddle with our arms underwater. we basically just have to sit by the poolside, with our floaters tied around our mid-section, + paddle with our tiny arms in the water. up, down, up, down went coach joy’s instruction + there goes our little chubby arms flailing in the water. i was restless after a few minutes + was up on my feet exploring the side of the pool. mum watched by the poolside + was gently reminding me to go back to where the rest of the class is + listen to our coach.

one whole hour flew by so fast, + my first day in swimming class is over, it was a good thing we can transfer to the kiddie pool {oh, did i forget to mention we are actually doing our class in the 4ft/5ft pool?} just near the entrance of the resort + resume our swimming there. i got off the pool, only because mum talk me to it, by 6.30pm!

i had a wonderful time + i cannot wait to swim again. i have gone on to two more sessions, which i will tell you all about soon, before i got sick + had fever, which made me miss my classes πŸ™ i am feeling a bit better now, with just coughs + cold, + hopefully i can attend more sessions this week until i used up all of the 10 days that is included in my class.
