Happy birthday wishes to Miss Jane, and Ruey! We went out for lunch today to celebrate, and had a great day. Even managed to make it back in time to pick up Liam from school... just ;)
Liam also changed swimming lessons to Tuesdays. He has been in the same level for a year, and wasn't progressing. I'm not a pushy mumma who demands excellence or anything, but I am paying a FORTUNE for swimming lessons, and I think it's a combination of him and the teachers. I think after a year, they should be doing something to help his progression. He had been in a group with a male teacher and three other boys. I changed him to a group with a female teacher, and today he did much better. Not so much mucking around etc. As I was sitting watching him, one of the other mums started to chat to me, and I was saying how he'd just moved groups. She told me, that if they are in the same level for 32 weeks, you get one free extra lesson a week until they go up to the next level! GREAT! Thanks for telling me that Pool Staff! I had a big talk to them last week and was ready to pull him out and just stop the swimming lessons all together, or to change pools. They looked him up on the computer and had a good chat to me, but failed to tell me that, or that after doing his school swimming, he was actually moved up a group. Confusing I know. He did 6 weeks of swimming with school. At the end they gave him the certificate for the next level. When I take him in there privatly, they continued to keep him in the previous level. So I questioned both that and the free lesson thing today... they are having him assessed again next week, and will most likely put him up a level. Gee it annoys me when places offer special deals like that, but don't tell you about it until you bring it up!
So anyway: HAPPY BIRTHDAY MISS JANE. HAPPY BIRTHDAY RUEY.
Need to get back to work and get through these photos, and also get on top of my DT committments. Sorry Janine & Ange... I will get there! Soon.
