Yesterday was the final day of a 5 day swimming course for my son. Getting there every day with all 3 kids was a bit of a struggle some days, but yesterday made it all worth while!
On the last day, they all got to try out for a swimming badge. One little girl got her 10m badge, and the rest are all still pre-swimmers, and were aiming for their Teddy Bear 3 badge.
For this you need to achieve a number of tasks, including – climb into the pool unaided, “swim” with armbands and floats on front and back, put your head underwater to pick up a swim stick, jump in un-aided.
The final task was the biggie for my son – for months he has refused to jump in, but yesterday he DID – not only in the shallow end, but in the deep end too!
He also swam about 3 metres on his back without armbands – but to my knowledge there are no badges for 3m!!!
When we got back to the changing room, I recorded this clip on my iphone. He is so excited you may not follow all he says, but you can’t miss his pride and joy.
I had promised (bribed?) him that we would buy a surprise if he jumped in, so that is the “prize” he is talking about at the end.
Can you tell he is excited!!!
Finally, I am still taking part Project 365 by taking daily photos. To prove it, here are some of the photos from the last few weeks – in no particular order!
Be back soon.
