The mini-monsters have turned into aquatic monsters this month, we recently received a family pass to our local pool and have been taking full advantage of it!
I think my favourite part has been to see them gain confidence in the water; the youngest one went from not wanting his face to be near the watery stuff to now splashing around like a seal pup. His swimming style is probably not the most graceful but he is happy and can stay afloat on his own. I think that we underestimate the importance of learning skills like swimming or cycling. On the face of it, these skills perhaps don’t seem all that important but the feeling of accomplishment that they bring is oh so important to a child’s development.
