This week we took the Guides swimming. It was a nice low-prep meeting between two epic baking sessions, and with two leaders away, we needed something that didn’t require much adult input. A couple of mums kindly stayed for the evening, for bit of extra adult presence.
We had a good turnout (more than two thirds) considering it was in a different town at slightly different times, and considering not everyone always feels like swimming. The pool is really fun – it has a water flume and a wave machine – and we spent a good hour-and-a-bit splashing around. Get me in water and I basically turn into a ten-year-old. I had to rein myself in from being too competitive about who could do an underwater handstand for the longest.
