Ordinary Moments – A Weekly Family Swim

The past week, we’ve been up to all sorts, including baking, making jolly snowmen biscuits, painting, and generally being silly. Here’s some recent cheeky faces from my three little treasures…

 And as it’s December I wanted to stick with the festive posts I had to get this in there…

So every Friday we visit one of our local swimming pools that both Daddy & I use to visit when we were little, it’s nothing spectacular, just a small pool (thats heated like a bath might I add and is sadly closing next week so we’ll be moving to the new pool round the corner, sad times!), the kids love it, we love it and the bonus is that most Fridays it’s only our family members in there. Us five along with Grandad, Uncles, their auntie and cousins – it’s great.
We have taken the little ones swimming since they were all very small so they’re very confident and enjoy being in the water. The one thing we do find amazing though, is looking at the girls progression. They’ve gone from being small babies splashing, to cautious paddlers, to what they are now – fearless fish who love to jump in, touch the floor and love the fact they have goggles each! A very proud thing for us to watch each week.
Quite simply, this is an ordinary but very much enjoyable moment for our family.

    Aww that sounds like a fabulous family tradition – it's such a shame your pool is closing, I hope the new one turns out to be just as much fun (and just as empty!) – and I love the pictures of your trio, they're just gorgeous!

    It's so great that you can all go as a family. I take N to swimming lessons, but his dad has never even been to watch which N would love, let alone coming in the pool with us. I love that second photo.
