Thursday Challenge : Happy

Happy he is, when he swims.

When we enrolled Aaryan for swimming classes in 2006, during a summer camp, for the first few days, he would just sit outside the pool with his legs dangling in the water. We thought of it as an initial reaction to water. But when it went on for 10 days, the coach suggested that I join him in the pool too.

And when I started learning swimming along with him, he was relaxed and picked up swimming faster than me!

It’s been 5 years now, and needless to say that he is a near pro. Of course his focus is more on jumping, diving, splashing water or throwing goggles from one end and swimming underwater to get them!

Now that we have a pool in our building complex, he is having a gala time with his friends. Not a single day is missed at the pool and is ready with his bag much before the appointed hour, everyday!

Swimming makes Aaryan truly happy!

    Swimming is a very good exercise. Pl encourage him to continue swimming as long as he can.
    And, present day Condos have all the facilities for the family.

  4. Great to see your son in the pool !! try to take some close up fotos of ur kid when in pool. the blue water background always aids in producing a super click.
    I too started to get into the pool just to make my son feel good. The result is that I learnt swimming and my son is still afraid to dip his head under water.
