is what is needed! Xaviers school swimming lessons have finished now. I went to watch his last session and he got straight in the pool and to my complete amazement he bobbed down to get his shoulders wet and even put his mouth in the water and blew bubbles!!! To say I was gobsmacked would be an understatement! These things probably seem menial to others but this is such a huge huge achievement for him! I never thought he would ever get in a swimming pool!!!
Back to the encouragement thing. Well school sessions are over and tomorrow is the last day of school for the summer. Now as much as I would love to take him swimming in the holidays it is going to be packed! It was quiet when the school went swimming and I’m not sure how well he would cope with a packed and very noisy swimming pool.
So… my plan is to get a pool for the garden. Not quite the same thing I know but it will help keep his confidence of water growing. We go on holiday at the end of the summer holidays and there are 4 pools at the resort we will be staying at so I want him to feel confident to get in the pool while we are there.
With this beautiful weather we have been blessed with I have been checking out the internet as I know lots of places will have sold out of pools. I came across All Round Fun who not only have pools in stock but I have also discovered they have 25% off! Awesome! Just waiting for payday to arrive and I will for sure be choosing a pool and having some fun with the kids in it! If we can’t go to the pool, the pool can come to us! I really want Xavier to progress with this and one day learn to swim. I feel its a life skill that everyone should have.
