Nippers 017

So the long suffering readers will know about Caleb’s long running hate to love journey of water. Since the swimming lessons had been going so well I decided Nippers (surf life saving for the littlies) would be a really fun summer activity. It was a bit of a shame that the Melbourne weather didn’t feel the need to commit to a summer. The other benefit was for Caleb to get in ‘loosing’ training – you know the annoying kid at the party that falls apart as soon as he looses – yeah that was mine. It has been lots of fun and has definitely helped. Saturday was their inter-club competition and Caleb got a 2nd and 3rd and he was really happy.

After the group Poppy and Caleb ended up on the paddle board and Poppy pushed him out into the water and while he was trying to sort out what to do he floated out too far to put his feet down. Of course this was the one week I didn’t wear swimmers so I waded out in my jeans before the young life saver offered (reluctantly) to go and fetch him. Unfortunately for the life saver the look on his face as he entered the cold water only made it even funnier.

*No Caleb’s were hurt in this story. He was in no danger, I could of easily reached him and he wasn’t distressed at all.
