    Watching kid's swimming lessons.

    Steven has a lesson every morning this week. He's very confident in water but cannot swim without aids so we've booked this course to get him started. There are 10 children in the group - all non-swimmers.

    It's the funniest thing I've ever sat and watched in my life. Today was day 3 and the instructor took their floats away and told them to lie back and kick their legs. OMG it was total carnage.

    On a plus note though the boy managed about 3 seconds of "proper" swimming. :D

    I recommend it to anyone needing a good laugh.

    Oooooh! They were allowed to use floats? We weren't--but that was in the dark ages!

    Steven is progressing. Have a feeling he'll be pretty confident and paddling along without the floats by Friday! :)

    :p i'd like to see that.

    I always thought watching 4 year olds play soccer was the funniest thing.

    No swimming lessons are funnier. I've no idea how the instructor kept a straight face.

    Actually now the funniest thing ever is the Skype call Dorothy just made to me.

    Yes but unbeknown to me Adrian had uninstalled the software to my skype phone. :mad:

    So I could hear Dorothy but she couldn't hear me so she is talking and I'm replying via the Chat box.

    I got it sorted eventually and we've just finished talking. :D
