At the Pool

   I took James swimming this morning to the local indoor pool. He was somewhat reluctant at first - we just went to see the other kids playing but no one was there except for the ladies doing aquafit. Once we were inside he was quite willing to get changed, get his "floaties" on and splash on the edge. The water was wonderfully warm in the paddling pool (sometimes it's a bit on the cool side) so it wasn't long until he was all the way in and splashing like mad! He was soon blowing bubbles and practising his kick while I twirled him around and he had his floaties off for most of the visit.

   We didn't stay too long - better to leave while he's still having fun - so we were back home in time to get the soup cooking for lunch. Just my usual, carrot and lentil, but he had worked up quite an appetite and had a big helping. His eyes were drooping by the time lunch was over so it took only minutes to get him settled for his nap. I had to waken him two hours later, so I had plenty of time for a nap myself and a few cleaning up chores. Hope he sleeps tonight!


  1. No worries about sleeping...he goes down a bit later in general nowadays, but just reads in his bed and calls down every so often to ask what Dave and I are watching or if we are eating cookies. Sounds liek a good time!

    1. Yes, it was a good day all round. Hope this continues for the next 3 months. I am going to try to get him outside more.
