I was going to have this as my word for last week, but then I didn’t have time to write the post so I’m having it this week as it still applies.
I was very proud of Madam on holiday, that girl is fearless when it comes to the swimming pool! She disappeared off down various water slides that were mainly in the dark, and having finally convinced her that her armbands aren’t helping anymore she actually swam on her own! It was a vague doggy paddle but even so she did it!
I was proud of Sir because he went off on the playground and joined in with other kids 🙂 he also has stopped wearing armbands in the pool – they really weren’t helping him… he hasn’t tried swimming yet but he’s so tall he could probably stand up in most of the pool!
I was proud of myself because I drove home from Centerparcs! normally hubby does the *holiday* driving even though we take my car, but when we came to go home, he discovered he’d lost his glasses.. so I took the wheel 😀 He gave me directions (even though my car could probably find it’s own way home from there!) it’s the furthest I’ve driven in a while.
The last reason that I’m proud of the kids is a little sad, a young lady who was on the same school bus as them passed away at the weekend, I’m not sure how much the kids understand but I’m proud of them for dealing with it in their own way.
