Some More Firsts...

Today was a day of 1sts. Lo's 1st swimming lesson, & Ryder's 1st solo swimming lesson- no Mummy or Daddy just a couple of other kids & the instructor!Swimming lessons have always been Roger's domain, but we decided that I would take Lo, so for the 1st time in my adult life I bought myself a pair of sensible Mummy bathers. They are plain, black & practical & a couple of years ago I would rather have swam nude than be caught dead in them. How times have changed!Willow actually enjoyed her class, although she looks very serious in the pictures. We may make a swimmer of her yet!Then it was water-boy's turn. He was initially reluctant to get in the pool, but once he was in he spent the next 1/2 hour bouncing around after the instructor with a huge smile on his face. He listened & followed instructions most of the time & watching him do the little torpedo hands made me melt.

It was very strange us both being on the sidelines & watching Ryder do a class without us. I guess it is just something that we have to get used to... where did my baby boy go? sniff.

Beautiful shots of your little ones. I can almost feel the chlorine in my eyes as I look at them!

Lots of firsts for your little fam! You may grow to love those mummy bathers yet. At least they don't fall down when you dive in the water.

It makes me realise how far I've come. All these little milestones along the way as we slowly release our little people out into the world.

awww so cute! looks like we go to the same pool for lessons but thankfully daddy has taken over swimming lessons this year and I don't need to bare my body on a weekly basis at the pool anymore!

and there is nothing wrong with a good solid swimming costume!
