We Did It

Grandma, get out your sewing kit!

Findley finally earned his badge. It has been a long time coming, but he completed the “big arms” crossing on his first try again tonight, making it three weeks in a row. The regular pep talks and visualization techniques must have worked; or maybe it was the new goggles.


But if you want to know the truth, his instructor was sick today and a cute young girl replaced him. I think Finn was showing off. He’s always been a bit of a Casanova with the ladies.

We are on to Level 2 now. To master this level, Finn has to swim the length of the pool rather than the width, alternating between dogie paddle and big arms, and finishing with the back crawl. I’d better settle in, with this many components it could be a while before we see another badge.
