Gradually, we return to the new normal. Last summer, Kirsten and Darren took Alannah to swimming lessons, water-awareness lessons, more accurately. This morning (yes, Sunday at 8am) they regrouped, and off she went again. The pool this group uses is in the basement of a large block of apartments on New South Head Road. It could even be the pool for owners which was under-used, and so the body corporate is employing it usefully. Would like to think so!
Alannah was not all that keen to begin with, there were some tears but not really sustained. In this series of photos you can see her relaxing as the half-hour session progressed. They even have homework, which mainly involves getting her head/face in water, blowing bubbles, and the like.
