Swimming with the fishes

Everytime I look at this I wish I was back swimming with the fish, these are still, as you can see, unfinished... but I'm sure I'll get there one day! I've just started Jack having swimming lessons.. he's hysterical, constantly trying to dive under the water (scary for me as I'm on the sidelines and he really can't swim yet!) the teacher is always telling him not to go under the water without her as he pops up with a massive grin on his face - I have no idea how much water he swallows! His latest thing is to join the other group in the pool whilst his terribly patient teacher is taking one of the other three kids in his class across the pool. He's usually back in his place on the step waiting for her by the time she get's back, but the other group is slightly more advanced and is doing much more exciting things... naughty Jack, always a tinker. I spend most of the class wincing at how brave he is. I hope one day he gets to go diving and loves it as much as I did! By the way the new house was great, it's amazing how much the garden had grown in just a few months and it was so lovely to go round and imagine our lives to come there. Jack loved the space in the house and was running around until he flaked out in 'bed' (we were all camping in the house as we have no furniture yet!) with a smile on his face... I just had the smile!
