Swimming lessons have become a regular Saturday event and, usually, Kei takes Thomas while I look after Samuel (which means I put him down for his nap and enjoy a little Nicole time :)).

Last Saturday Kei took on the painful task of gathering tax papers for the accountant so I was on swimming lesson duty. I definitely got the better end of the deal.

It was the first time I’ve witnessed Thomas in a swimming lesson. He definitely needs to work on his kicking, but he enjoys “running” through the water and does a good job listening to the teacher. He’s also learned to blow bubbles in the bath in preparation but is yet to transfer that to the pool. Frankly I don’t blame him. Blowing bubbles in pool water is a little gross.
