Swimmer!

Today Riley earned his swimmers badge. I didn't think he was going to get it as the criteria are pretty tough, I'm not even sure I would get one. Treading water for two minutes and two pool lengths with only a two second break in between, good form front crawl, breast stroke or back crawl (or combined). He is really proud of himself, as am I of him. This means now that he can go in the deep end and off the diving board outside of class time. Woot!

Well done Riley!! He set a goal and achieved it -- I love it when children accomplish something they've set out to do. We need to remember this as adults too. Congrats!!!
