"Swim" Class

We signed Jack up for "swim" class at the Natatorium. It's only a half hour for four Thursday nights. I put "swim" in quotes because it's really more just getting them used to the water, not swimming. Peter and Chloe signed Michael up too. We had a fun time. The first thing you try is to see if you can get them to blow bubbles in the water. Poor Jack got a few mouthfuls of the super-concentrated chlorine-laced water. For several seconds we were worried about him because he look so green around the gills, his eyes were watery and he looked doped up. But then he snapped out of it and was having fun again. He mainly did a lot of splashing.

After got home, we gave him a bath. I tired to give him a mohawk (or a faux hawk) and his hair is so long that he just ended up looking like a punk rock Ed Grimley.
