At last! It finally properly happened today – proper space between us – H jumped in the pool in her swimming class all on her own. I caught her once she was in the water, but that moment leading up to it she was on her own, and oh, the smile on her face as she did it – one very proud little girl.

She had a ‘woggle’ around her for confidence, but I suspect next week there’ll be no stopping her. Her friend George is a properly good jumper, so I’m hoping some of that will rub off on her and they’ll both be off – we had a lesson practising putting the mouth and nose underwater and breathing which went really well too – she only choked twice…
