Mum, I love going underwater, it’s my favorite thing…

Can you imagine a better thing to hear? This was Oliver after his swimming lesson - where we’ve had a big breakthrough in the last two weeks. Head is under the water, flippers on, arms flailing. Such a difference from the beginning of the summer - incredible. Seems all the lessons, days at the lily pond - oh and maybe falling off the dock without a life jacket - actually are paying off! Needless to say Lola is keeping right up with him and is a little fish already!

First Day at School

Back to LA and back to our routine, and a new routine for everyone. Last week marked Lola’s official first day at preschool. In the end we decided to have both kids going back to Ms Ira at Newpath Montessori. They will be together and Ms Ira is a phenomenal educator so I think they are in good hands!

Well she gave me a kiss goodbye with narry a backward glance. Oliver too, seems to have settled back in quickly. The second week of course is the true test and we’ve had a bit of reluctance on Oliver’s part, but they know some of the children there which makes it easier.

And now I have in theory some free time to figure out what the hell I’m going to do next!
More blogging on the events of Maine soon.
