1st visit to public pool

Last friday evening after work, pick my boys up from nursery and bring them for a swim at the public pool in Bangsar, since my SIL's was sending her boys for swimming class, so we join them. I have been thinking want to sent them for swimming class or not, is it too early? Maybe bring them to the pool and let them try out.

Fearles & Cruz got excited when they see the pool, normally they only get to swim at the hotel pool not the public pool. Bring them to the kids pool, quite deep, they stand the water is at their chest level. Fearles & Cruz dare not to play in the pool, only sit at the "staircase" and play with the water, after some warm up, my SIL bring them walk walk and jump jump in the water, Fearles become more daring. He start use his leg flipping the water, and try to float (he got two floats on the arms). All the while he is more scary cat, even watch cartoon sometime he get scare also, but talk about swim, he not scare at all. He saw his cousin at the adult pool learn swimming, he walk there too, my SIL put him down into the water, at first he scare, after a while, he like it. On the other hands, Cruz is scream his lung out when we try to put him into the water, he don't want, he refuse. He only want to play himself.

It's quite fun, i should do this more often, bring them to the pool once a week. Maybe evening water is a bit cold, Cruz after the swim, he got little running nose and cough.

But the trainer asked me not to waste money cos the youngest he took in was 3 - 4 yrs old when they able to take instructions. I think your boys are ready.. esp Fearles. :D
