Day One of Swimming: Did not turn out how I had hoped. Not at all. Jameson kicked and screamed, refused to go in the water. The only kid throwing a fit about it. It was pretty embarrassing. I'm sure the parents were thinking 'Glad that's not my kid', and 'thank god my kid likes the water'. Well, Jameson LOVES the water, he's a fish! He was not happy that he had to wear the "swim belt", he wanted his "swim vest". I think maybe he was nervous, he thought he would sink right to the bottom, I don't really know, but it was very bad.
Day Two of Swimming: I had a talk with Jameson about his swimming class, and why he needed it, and so on and so forth. After that I figured it was time that I should bring out the big guns. It's called BRIBE him! I told him if he listened to his teacher and wore the life belt, I would get him a treat. My mother had the day off so she wanted to go and see him too. He ended up doing awesome! He went right in, did his thing, and had a great time. Of course my mother ended up getting him a package of M & M's. I don't know if it was the talk or the treat that actually did it for him, but I'm glad he got over it!
Day three of Swimming: Jameson of course did great....he and the other boys in his class (there are two others) tend to wonder around the pool. The girls (2 of them) seem to follow direction much more easy and do what they're supposed to. I brought my camera today to get some good shots of Jameson swimming and learning to swim. I made sure I asked the swim teacher before I started snaping photos and she tells me no cameras in the swim area! WHAT?!? Since when am I not allowed to take pictures of my own child? But then I thought about it and I'm sure some perv ruined it for all of the parents, ugh.
Day Four & Five of Swimming: He did great once again, but Ashton's getting bored sitting there and he wants to go in the pool, or play with some of the pool toys, so I might drop him off at the childcare center so he can play during the lessons.
On Thursday we went to a childrens music festival in congress park in Saratoga. We met Amanda there with William (Jameson's best friend, Amanda nannies for him and his brother) and Michele with her new baby girl Kaelyn, and Calleigh (whom she nannies for). We packed a lunch and headed there after swim. It was a cute show, Jameson liked it, Ashton got bored after about 15 minutes (which happened to be when he finished his bag of chips!). It was fun, we walked around, went on the Caroucel, had a picnic and saw the ducks with thier ducklings.
