The First Dip

Last night DH and I took the kids to their first swimming lessons. The class is a Parent & Child (the new Mommy & Me), 30 minute, 2x a week for 2 weeks. It was not as enjoyable as I would have liked. The kids were so excited, especially Declan, and they looked so adorable! But all that changed the second we hit the water. It was cold! That immediately set Abigail off and she alternated between crying and shivering for the next 20 minutes until we took her out early. Declan was fine with the splashing and playing games, until we tried to get him to float on his back or do anything else that required him to remove his death grip from our necks. Ugh!

The only thing that makes me feel better is that we were not the only ones with screaming kids. We'll try again on Thursday and hope that it is warmer!
