Swimming lessons

Boo and Skibo's swimming lessons started this afternoon: a glorious day, not too hot, (although close!) and the children did wonderfully. Their teacher was rather pleased by how well they did: in spite of their last lessons being a year ago, they could still do just about everything she'd taught them then.
This is rather more surprising than one might think, given that we hadn't taken them swimming for perhaps 9 of the intervening 12 months!

The more I see of her teaching them, the more impressed I am with how good she is: the way she gets them to try things, to work through nerves and fears, is really incredible!

Yours, happy things going swimmingly well,
