Do you remember around this time last year, Luke suffered a real disappointment with his swimming, they didn't think kis swimming was up to scratch, and whilst trying to get his 2000m badge they asked him to stop? Well, he has been working hard, his teacher has been working on his style, and last Saturday (at a silly time of 9.15am (that doesnt usually exist at the weekends, well not in terms of being out the house!) Luke got into the pool and started the first of his 100 lengths. An hour and a half later, he got out the pool with a beaming face, as he had achieved his goal.
In the meantime, Alec was going for his 100m badge, but did not stop swimming! In the end he ended up swimming 400m!! And Ethan was attempting his 10m, and swam 20m! So a very successful morning all round. Well done lads!
Over the autumn we put up a bird box in some "dead space" at the back of the shed. We had been wanting to put in a camera, as the tv was only the other side of the wall, but we didn't get around to it. Wish we had now, as we have a family of blue tits in residence! Can you see it sticking it's head out the bird box? This is the closest we can get, which I suppose is perfect for the birds, but I would love to be able to have a closer peek!
