Making a Splash with Jessie Jessica 09 SEP 2011

It would appear that Jessica loves the water, as noted by the fact that she starts crying when taken out of the bath, or removed from the shower (yes, she now showers with Chantelle every now and then), or lifted out of the swimming pool.

Wait a minute. Back up there Mr. Narrator. Did you just say pool?

Yup, I said pool. Monday was the official start of Jessica’s career in swimming, with the ultimate goal being of course her role as a top paid swimsuit model who jets around the world and happens to takes her folks along for the ride. But I digress. Anyway, Chantelle and some of the other mommies from the Mommies Club that she now and then attends decided that the time was now right for swimming lessons, and thus it came about that we signed up our little dribble monster at the Blowfish Swimming school in the Strand.

There was a fair bit of scrambling around to get the necessary items like a swimming nappy, baby swimming costume and of course some swimming attire for the big girl accompanying the little girl in the pool, but as per usual Chantelle’s fine administrative skills meant that come Monday the two Lotter girls were ready for some wet and splashy action!

The school is situated in residential Strand and the pool itself is a marvelous temperature controlled indoor pool with all the necessary equipment, layout and what-not required. Apparently the instructor is fabulous and by all accounts, Chantelle, Jessie, Andy and Annabella all enjoyed their outing tremendously! (I’m jealous, because I didn’t get to attend).

Between the two adults, a handful of pictures and short video clips were captured, and seeing as I’m not a particularly greedy man, I thought it prudent to post them up here and thus share with the rest of you lot! :P

A before shot:

An in the pool shot (Jessica is in the pink!):

And some photos. Note that the only pictures I have are these two and the one a little higher up in this post. Hopefully I’ll get the girls to give me a little bit more material to work with next week! *hint hint* :P

In summary: Looks like they had loads of fun while I was stuck at work. Luckily buggers! ;)

2014-01-20 UPDATE: After numerous people contacting me for a contact number for Blowfish Swimming School, my wife went and dug up the number that we used when we were still utilizing their services a couple of years ago: Anke – 082 900 7614. Hopefully that helps.
