Flynn's first swim!

Bank holiday Monday is here again and I hope you are all enjoying it. We certainly have as we took Flynn swimming for the first time.

He absolutely LOVED the pool. There was hesitation from him at all. He was raring to get in the water and once in, he tried to throw himself out of my arms and into the water. He laughed and splashed excitedly and had no issue with being dunked under the water. He enjoyed paddling around and sitting on the edge of the pool and dropping in. He even saw a little girl standing on the edge and jumping in which he then tried to copy but instead of jumping in, he just walked off the edge. I thought he'd maybe last 20-30 minutes in the water before he was ready to get out but 80 minutes later, we had to drag both kids out the water.

Not only was it Flynn's first swim but it was the first time we'd all gone swimming together as a family. I'd been with Vala before but every time we'd tried to go as a family (before Flynn was born), something would always come up and we'd have to cancel. We tried many times but today was the first time we've successfully all gone together and it was wonderful. I came home feeling absolutely starving and Jordan is so tuckered out that he's asleep in his chair beside me as I write this. It's been a really great experience for us all and I hope we can all go swimming together again soon.

Until next time,
