Thank you! She's our "allergy" child, but she's doing exceptionally well. The last time she had a severe allergic reaction and had to be rushed to the hospital was four years ago this Christmas Day, so we feel very fortunate. You can't see it in the picture, but she's got her belt containing her allergy medication wrapped around her little waist. Though it hasn't been needed, it's still her constant companion "just in case."
SUCH beautiful boys, Tod! You can tell they are brothers, but their different personalities shine through. The adorable dark-haired boy looks as though he could be a real scamp at times, and the blonde boy looks sweet as pie, but I bet those two designations get switched around sometimes.
Yesterday was the annual junior swimming gala. It was held in damp drizzle but the happy parents and grandparents ( of course!) kept under cover most of the time and enjoyed the excellent swimming and antics the teachers had up their sleeves. This was a fun race called "Crazy Clowns" imageshack.com/a/img921/8369/0va4Gv.jpg
This caper had the non swimmers dressed in sailor outfits and the tune of "Ahoy there Mate!" blasted over the Tanoy. Clinging on for dear life they looked more like little tadpoles! imageshack.com/a/img923/8449/tvjknt.jpg
Lastly my youngest grandson aged 5, awaiting his turn in the fun relay called 'Sleepy Time' - The student teachers had to swim a width, change into some type of bedroom attire and then be pushed across again. I've put up some videos. imageshack.com/a/img924/9272/um51I7.jpg
Just now seeing all the fun water babies, Tod ~ what a great day! Your grandson is an amazingly strong & good swimmer. All the kids & teachers seem to be having a great time. So interesting to see pictures and videos of schools in other countries. Is this a private school or regular public one?
Strikingly beautiful photo for your memory scrapbook, Htmb.
