Jessica Enjoying her Swimming Classes Jessica | My Life 22 NOV 2011

A week or two ago I finally got the opportunity to join Chantelle and Jessica on one of their Monday swimming lessons, held at the Blowfish Swimming School which operates out of a converted residential house in the Strand.

It was fantastic to actually be there in person for a change (up until now, I’ve only ever seen the video footage of Jessie in the heated pool), and to actually witness just how much Jess seems to enjoy the experience – and the water!

That said, shame, my little baby girl was well and truly put through her paces seeing as none of the other mommies that usually attend with Chantelle could make it, meaning that there were no rest breaks for our little dribble monster as they swiftly moved from one exercise to the next!

One of the best things to come out of this experience for me though is the fact that I now have a very good idea of what they do with Jessie in the pool, what she is used to, and more importantly what I can do with her in Granny and Grandpa’s pool come this Summer holiday.

Needless to say, I can’t wait! :)

Anyway, here are a couple of video that I managed to grab on the day:

And now you know! :)

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.

A couple of photos snapped on one of Jessica’s visits to the Blowfish Swimming School in Somerset West, where she and a couple of other babies from the Mommies Club that Chantelle visits with, brave the water each and every week!

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! ;)
