Today my dear friend Wendy joined us for a trip to the local pools. I wanted to take Israel along to have a play before he starts his swimming lessons next week. We have booked him in for one term to have an introduction to swimming and water confidence. Living in New Zealand means that he will be doing a lot of swimming and will need to be confident for when he goes to the beach. Michael is really excited to get him out on swimming, diving and other water sport adventures, so it’s good to get him familiar with water from a young age. Initially Israel didn’t like the splashes of water on him, but I think he slowly adjusted and enjoyed himself… although he did spend a fair bit of time trying to suck his toes!
