Three long years of swimming lessons.
By December 2010 he was still clinging to the steps, floaties on, bubble on; fearful, reluctant, stubborn, his hair dry. By January 2011 he is leaping unaided into the deep end to fetch rings at the bottom of the pool. Amazing stuff.
One thing changed: he was visited by our dear friend Confidence.
I think I can do it.
I know I can do it.
I’m going to do it.
This time I’m really going to do it.
Look, Mum! I’m doing it! I’m really doing it!
So, this week, I’m grateful for…
1. Confidence – thank you for showing my boy that he can conquer his fears and learn new loves.
2. My children’s school – our second year in a row that you have taken a anxious Kinder child gently by the hand and embraced them with the joy of school life. You are a wonderful bunch of teachers, staff and families and we are lucky to have you.
3. Zooper Doopers – without you I would have exploded in the heat.
