Adam’s 1st Swimming Class!

Adam had his first swimming lesson with Teacher Eugene (Anya’s former swimming instructor) last week but it was a very short session because they got rained out. He seemed quite happy during class which is a stark contrast to Anya who cried (and sometimes vomited) every lesson for about a month before becoming resigned to her fate.

The sun was blazing hot for the second lesson a week later so they managed to do a lot more. Adam was clearly very stressed throughout the lesson but still followed instructions. They did some kicking, some floating, some blowing of bubbles and some swishing around in the water.
