So I guess Summer has begun...

Kinda...

Mick is out all hours of the day and night fighting fires, and the kids have started swimming lessons!

Sam had his first lesson last week! He did SO well! His teacher is an absolute wonder woman :) She was so gentle and patient and kind...to both me and Sam (LOL) He has improved SO much in only three lessons. His first lesson his teacher tried to get him to float on his back (she was supporting him) and it was hilarious to watch...he looked like an ironing board. So stiff and awkward! (reminded me of the last time I bathed one of our cats hehehe) But by his third lesson he was happy to get in and quite relaxed!

The girls have started to learn actual strokes. Might make a nice change...often when they swim I can't tell whether they are drowning or swimming LOL

So I guess summer is kinda here...I say 'kinda' because Saturday morning the water was a delightful (!?!?!?) 17 degrees C. All I can say is THANK GOD I didn't have to get in...


I sat high and dry on the edge of the pool sipping my cuppa;)

It's so funny to see your summer starting over there, when we are heading into the dark and wet and cold over here! Your kids look like they are enjoying their lessons a lot!!
