Today was an exciting day...it was Hudson's first day of swimming lessons at Emler Swim School. We enrolled with three other friends from playgroup ~ Amy & Porter, Kara & Tanner, and Meredith & Reid. (There are two other boys in the class, so again he is with all boys...too funny!) I arrived kind of nervous, not knowing how Hudson would do. He was ALL SMILES the minute we got in the pool. He just kept looking around smiling at me, the instructor, and his friends. We sang a few songs and splashed a little and then began the activities. The first activity was for the boys to get in a yellow blow up tube and for us to pull them around. There were also colored balls in the pool for them to play with. Hudson saw the balls and literally jumped through the tube going head first into the water. I immediately grabbed him and pulled him up. He saw Meredith first and she smiled and cheered for him, but after about 10 seconds he realized that he didn't enjoy plunging his head into the water and started crying. :( Poor thing. It only took a few minutes to cheer him up though and he was back to enjoying his first lesson...he even enjoyed sitting on the edge of the pool and being pulled into the water. (Head out of the water though!) It was such a fun lesson ~ I hope he continues to enjoy them and learns a lot at the same time. It must have worn him out because my little dare devil took an extra long afternoon nap when we got home!
(These pictures aren't that good, but I had to document his first lesson anyway!)

We missed Tanner today...he was sick. :(
