Long awaited swimming lesson pictures...

Nicholas MacDonald at Safe Start

Nicholas and Mr. Jamie
Nicholas, pulling up on the wall after doing a "swim".

Nicholas successfully climbed out of the pool. He was very upset
that Mr. Jamie pulled him back in the water.

Nicholas doing a float. Note the screaming. Also, note
that Jamie is not touching him. (Actually, you might
not be able to see that he isn't touching Nicholas. Take my
word for it.) :-)
Second verse, same as the first.

Matthew MacDonald at Safe Start

Matthew and Mr. Jamie. For some reason, Matthew likes
to kick his feet up in the air. Jamie is working on that.

Matthew floating, not being supported by Jamie.

Matthew trying to climb out of the pool.

Matthew pulling up on the side of the pool after being dunked.

Matthew doing what Jamie called a "270". That's where Jamie
turns him face down in the water, and then Matthew has to
rotate himself around so he's facing out of the water. Personally I
thought it looked like a 360, but what do I know? ;-)

This is one of those "you'll thank me when you're older" experiences, isn't it?
