I mean it is an unclear pic.. but the joy is unmistakeable.
Now Brodie is absolutely loving swimming lessons.. This week he even crocodiled for me.. lol.. and he is now knowing what to do as soon as you say it.. he waits now and jumps when he is supposed to.. kicks and blows bubbles and even leans backwards himself and is 'singing' his version of 'I'm a little pancake' with me. and when he is backwards on the side of the pool he throws himself backwards as soon as you 'chop' him in the right spot.. But this week he decided he needed a new trick.. now at one point in the class they give us sinking rings to put between our toes, put our leg straight and the kids go out to get them.. obviously with my short legs this is not much of a challange. So after he did this the first time he has since been putting the ring between my toes for me and also between his.. which he thinks is great fun.. But this week he took it one step further.. he started to throw it .. and as it sunk I 'swam' him under water to it so he could grab it.. Well.. he loved it.. and threw it again and again. each time ducking underwater, kicking and reaching to grab it.. he even tried to push his instructor Shelly out of the way cause she was standing to close to it and he couldn't get it. lol.. I am soo impressed! and so was Shelley..lol.. A real little fish he is.. He, Nicholas and Lachlan are all improving so much in the pool lately.
Well Connor has had hols the last two weeks and it has been nice to have him home..especially when his brothers are at daycare.. he is a real pleasure to be around when he is on his own.. then we pick up Declan...!! lol.. anyway we haven't done too much out of the usual.. He made a little bead flower of his own while I did some.. and he was lucky enough for Tanya to take him with Michael and Talissa to the Heritage Village yesterday for their holiday fun.. He also went on his first playdate to Tanya's last Thursday after playgroup.. she took him own and brought him home that night.. first time without Mum or Dad.. or his brothers!!.. and today we had playgroup at the Botanical gardens again and then Tanya, Michael and Talissa came over for a play.. Tanya was a wonderful help with chasing kids, tidying the house and helping me pack.. I am so lucky to have met such wonderful friends here.. I keep telling her I am going to have to start paying here.. the house always seem cleaner after she leaves..lol. I bought her and the kids dinner tonight instead... still think I got the better deal!!!
Anyway I have prob bored you enough.. hope you all have a good week next week. and catch you soon!!
