I am so proud of this little guy, I was so worried about swimming lessons but he not only did the lessons with a group he put his head under the water!! You know I worry about so much, the list of things people need to know about Alec is pretty long as situations with him can change in a moment. Today is a celebration though he has completed his first level for swimming and my heart is bursting, every achievement is treasured and savoured fully and I love that our friends and family grasp the enormity of this achievement.
We had a few moments the first day when other boys were wearing shorts rather than speedo's and we had a talk and in the end I think he decided it was ok, others were wearing speedo's too, this has been our first I want what everyone else has
moment and I nearly caved and got him shorts but I stuck with it and let him know I wasn't getting shorts.
The photos in this layout are pretty average as they are from a phone but here he is in the water joining in. This is design 6 from Donna Downey's book designing layouts
, I needed a quick fix and from start to finish this took 30 minutes.
And here is his certificate! Next time he will be doing level 2.
