{Swim Lessons // Summer 2015}

Mason started private swim lessons last week! We attempted swim lessons last March, but didn't really complete them. The place we went was a swim school and instead of teaching them survival in a week or two {like most places} they spread it out over different levels {starting at 1 and going up to 12, which could take months or a year +}. It was a swim school where you could eventually be on a competing swim team. It was almost like gymnastics the way they did it there. We quit the school as Mason lost interest. So this year we decided we wanted to get him in private lessons. I remember several different family friends using a lady a town over from us and contacted one of them to get her information. She comes pretty well recommended. We called her and by the Grace of God she had a cancellation and was able to work Mason in! We were thrilled. The only time she had open though was last week at 1:30pm M-F. Thankfully my Mother in Law was able to take him M-T and Nate took him on Friday. Nate was so excited to see all that he learned during the week and said that Mason did awesome. He took video and pictures for him since I was not able to go.

Lessons went really well and Mason learned so much. And most importantly, he enjoyed the lessons.  My Mother in Law says that he was so anxious to learn each day.  I am so glad we were able to get in with Shelby!! 

Also, I bought Mason a new pair of swim trunks that are red & white. He calls them his lifeguard swim-trunks. It reminded me that I had swim-trunks for Diesel from when he was our first baby. That poor pup wore clothes all the time. Anyhow, I dug them out and put them on Diesel and Mason thought it was hilarious. He laughed for a solid 5 minutes and then asked me to take pictures of them. ha! Oh how I love these sweet boys of mine.

Diesel looks thrilled, doesn't he? He's a good sport, though. 

Do you take your child to swim lessons?


  1. I wanted to take Wyatt this summer but we've just been too busy. I'm definitely going to enroll him in some private lessons next summer! He's just the cutest!! Love the shades!

  2. How cute!!! My Mason loved his swim lessons when we took him also so yours must be a little fish just like mine! I'm so happy you were able to get him in with that swim teacher! He looks so cute in his shades :)

  3. As a swim instructor I LOVE hearing when parents put their kiddos in classes. It's such an important life skill! And, I LOVE when kiddos enjoy the lessons and learn so much. Sounds like Mason had a great time, and accomplished so much.
    Let's also talk about these photos. They're awesome and so funny all at the same time. :)


Thanks for the comments! Hope you are having an amazing day!!
