It’s another rainy Monday here in the North West. I’m really hoping this weather sorts itself out by the end of the month because we’ve got our first camping trip of the year booked at half term! Anyway, it’s been another normal week here with nothing very exciting going on. I’m just grateful for every week we get through without anybody’s bubble bursting or having to self-isolate!
The boys were back at Street Monkeys on Saturday. They both absolutely love it and it’s brilliant to watch them (literally) throwing themselves into it. This week they were trying something called a tic tac when you take two steps up a wall before turning round and landing on your feet, and their first attempts at cartwheels too. I can’t wait to see them building on their skills – maybe they’ll be back flipping before we know it!
I took this week’s pictures at the boys swimming lesson yesterday. For the first time in ages I actually felt like Toby was making progress and I could really see an improvement in his swimming. He’s always had trouble keeping his bottom up when he’s swimming on his front but it did loads better with it yesterday.
Gabe is making progress too, especially with putting his face in the water. He still won’t do it while he’s swimming but has been practicing picking sticks up from the steps and putting his whole face in the water to do it. He used to hate the water going in his ears when he was on his back too but that doesn’t bother him at all now either. Fingers crossed we can keep the lessons going now without any more disruption and they will keep improving!
That’s all from me this week, like I said there’s really not much going on at the moment. I’m getting my second Covid vaccination on Friday though so that’s something to look forward to this week!
This is my ninth year taking part in this linky celebrating childhood, based on a poem by Kahlil Gibran, “You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth” .
