Hayden had his first swimming lesson this morning.
He seemed really excited about it until I walked out of the room.
He was NOT a happy camper. He was sobbing and crying and screaming.
It broke my heart, but he really needs to know how to swim. I think he did great all in all. He was scared, but jumped into the water and went under a few times.
He was mad the whole time, but I think he will do well if he can get past the screaming. It doesn't help that all three boys in his class were crying. Once one boy stopped crying then another started. Uggh! It was a vicious cycle. It was so wild. All us moms were huddled up in the viewing area flinching. The viewing area is above the pool, and there are bars keeping us in which is why some of the pictures I took are blurry. It is hard to fit the camera between the bars.
Little stinker got a serious talking to by mom and dad. He ran from his teacher when it was his turn. She had to get out of the pool and chase him to catch him. Hopefully he won't do that again. We have 6 weeks of lessons and I hope by the end he is swimming like a fish!
