Toddler Swimming Lessons
It's that time of year, mamas. Time for swim and time for cheer! I have only done classes via the Portland Parks & Rec Aquatics program. Every year, they have this freebie week of swim class (this year, the Free Week* is June 19 to 23), held usually the week before the summer outdoor swim season starts (this year, Session 1 starts June 26).
Aquaducks, for ages 6 to 36 months, is basically like Book Babies in the pool. Songs, blowing bubbles, playing games - it is totally fun. Our first summer in Portland, I did the free week when Tati was just an itty-bitty 7 month old. For me, the most challenging thing about summer swim classes is that it's an EVERYDAY sort of thing. Two week sessions, class every day. That's intense. Still, it's fun. Warm pools, even if it's a tad bit nippy outside? I'm there.
