Each time we go to the pool, Reindeer increases in both confidence and enjoyment. It is my favourite time of the week!
Yesterday, as well as splashing, laughing and talking, we tried sitting him on the side of the pool and then falling into my arms in the water. We did this a few times and I was relieved to see that not only was he fine with getting into the water, once there he would immediately turn back to the side of the pool and try to grab on.
This is a really basic but very important safety thing to learn so I’m hoping that with a bit of repetition he will soon be doing this automatically.
