Oh Hello Blog! We meet again. It’s been a while, I know. Been trying to sleep early and cut back on idle Internet surfing. @_@
Enrolled Elmo in swim class. Classes are at 3 PM, every Tuesdays and Thursdays. Both Terci and I have got work, so we had to make major adjustments to our schedules to accommodate Elmo’s lessons (Terci more than me. Being the swimmer between the two of us, he is the one who joins his son in the water! 😛 Frustration nya actually na hindi ako marunong lumangoy. 😛 He tried teaching me and then later on,
gave up had me enrolled in formal swimming lessons. I never completed the course! I only lasted til the 5th or 6th session. 😛 Kaya naman career si Terci na matuto si Elmo. 😉 )
Elmo was initially afraid of the water. I was looking at photos and videos of him when he was younger, and he would really cling as if for dear life whenever his Dad brings him to the water. On the first day of swim classes, he cried during the most part, and didn’t want to leave the pool’s edge. After much persuasion and encouragement, he finally went down into the water… just as the session was wrapping up and his classmates were already getting out of the pool. His teacher was kind enough to allow him to sit in the next class. 😉
But now, they always go on overtime in the pool. Formal classes are only 30 minutes, but they extend even an hour beyond. To date, Elmo can already hold his breath underwater and propel himself. But he still has to learn how to rise above the water and breathe. He also has to build up on his upper body strength.
I meet with them afterwards and we all have ice cream together. I hope someday to be able to pick up from where I left off, and be able to join my boys in the water too. 😎
