|tears from the first day|
Laura's two week class is brutal on the parents and the children for the first couple of days, but by the end of the first week, it improves. Her tactic is to pry the child away from the parent, blow in their face and dunk them, and then let them go while instructing them to kick their legs. She taps on their head and reminds them to breath, while grabbing their swim trunks and pulling up, so they don't sink. It is amazing to watch them transform into little swimmers in just a few short days. The lessons were after school, so Walker was already a little tired, but he was a trooper. In fact, by the end of week one he was swimming several feet unassisted.
