One responsibility as a parent of young children living in Australia is to make sure they can swim. So we've been making the effort to send them to regular swimming lessons. Thankfully, they have been enjoying them this time around (previous attempts have resulted in unhappy children). Although Stephanie is doing well, it was Jeremy that has been the focus of our attention (he has been all too willing to jump into the deep end with or without floaties). Given that he has sunk like a stone in the past, it was pleasing to hear feedback from the swimming instructor that Jeremy is close to being promoted out of the beginner class, and up to the next grade (Otters).
We are very thankful for his enthusiasm and joy, and it continues to gladden our hearts seeing him being so active.
