Yay For Offspring #1

Posted by MANDI at 4:18 PM
Swimming lessons were a huge success through the holidays. All up he attended 9 lessons over the two week holiday period (one day was a public holiday so no swim class that day) and his confidence grew and grew, his swimming ability/skills improved and he just had a wonderful time. It was gorgeous to see him enjoying the water and rushing home to tell his Dad all about how great he'd done in the pool that day.


At the conclusion of the lessons the kids were presented with their certificates. #1 passed his level and is all set to be enrolled in the next stage next time round. He's so chuffed, and it's so sweet to see.

Congrats! :-) Over here this certificate is called "seahorse" and you get a sticker of it´s pic to be sewed on your bathing suit, so everybody can see: YES - you can swim safely!

Well done that (young) Man!

A nice achievement - what with us being girt by sea and all! (I just wish I knew what it was we did to the sea that was SOOOOooo bad, it got so upset - went looking for us - and fair GIRT us!)

He seems a happy camper your lad - good to see... look out summer - here comes OSNo1 - complete with the appropriate certification!

Bravo Zulu! (Oh yeah - that means WELL DONE! in Navy speak ok?!)

Oh Iris, that sounds so cute. I told #1 about the badge and he thought it was the best idea EVER!

Thanks Melody and Sam.

No, Chantalle. Still too cold there, lessons were down the hill at the indoor pool.

LOL Ron. And he says 'thankyou'
