DS2's swimming success!

DS2 (6) has just started swimming lessons with the school - I think he's done 6 or 7 lessons, which are only about 20 minutes long (dressing and undressing takes about 40 grin). He has always been terrified when we've taken him - has clung to me like a monkey, hands over his ears, hating any water on his face etc.

After a couple of sessions at school he was walking around the pool confidently and today there was a note in his home-school book saying he's completed the first two sub-levels of 'water confidence' - entering the water unaided and picking up a ring from the bottom of the pool in waist high water shock.

His TA is a PE whizz (unlike his mother) - but I still can't believe he actually went under the water!!!!

I'm starting to realise that it's one area in which he might be able to keep up with his peers - or some of them at least - which would be so great for him.

Mind you, mustn't get too excited - he hasn't actually taken his feet off the floor yet!grin
