This week saw Ella move up from ‘water babies’ swimming classes to ‘turtles’. Essentially what it means is that mum/dad no longer get in the pool with her and she’s in there with a max of 3 other children and their swimming teacher. She was beaming from ear to ear when she came out and is proudly telling everyone that she swims on her own now, without mummy! She was even more delighted to choose goggles (pink of course) which they’re encouraged to wear now. She’s growing up so quickly!
