Eli recently went on a 2 week crash course in swimming and as in all things he took to it with natural aplomb and excelled. Enid the swimming teacher said she'd only previously seen one other 2 year old with such a natural aptitude for swimming.
As we don't have a pool at our house we are enjoying taking people up on their offers of using their pools!! I think we went swimming 6 times last week! This is really helping Joel's confidence to develop in the water and his swimming is really coming on well. He has now learnt what fun it is to jump in the water and it's difficult to get him out of the pool! Eli needs no encouragement - he scares us all to death! He goes under, jumps too high and too far and just comes up laughing! We really are enjoying the lazy, hot days in the pool!
This boy knows no fear!
