After living near the beach for most of 2.5 months and content with playing at the water’s edge Laars has finally taken the plunge. He said he could swim if the water was warmer (I can identify with that) and its only marginally warmer but…..He’s In!
Doing the doggy paddle. Or a swift back kick. And he confidently goes through the surf with a kid-sized kick board, head totally immersed and salty water in his eyes. No complaints. He just feels great to be able to paddle out amongst his siblings.
All grown up!
Here he is with a lifejacket on, which is what he wears when I’m not with the kids or when the waves are big & strong. Otherwise he’s doing the doggie paddle.
