Beavers - Pre Gala Swim Trip

The Scouts have a swimming gala coming up next month so tonight the Beavers had their meeting at the University pool so determine who would be selected to represent our group this year. It got off to a bit of a slow start as one of the leaders was stuck in traffic and not enough parents volunteered to get into the water and help out. Myself included, although I had Freddie with me so wouldn't have been able to join in anyway. It will be different next year when I can leave him with Daddy and jump in.

Obviously since Jack only started swimming lessons last weekend he isn't up for selection for the gala, but he had fun messing about it the water. The more experienced swimmers had a chance to get their staged swimmers badge though and it was great to see the leaders in the water with the kids helping them along and having fun with them. I'm hoping that next year Jack will be one of those getting their stage 1 badge, maybe sooner if he does well with this swimming lessons and we can show that he has achieved all he needs to be awarded.

And the bonus for me was a nice chance to have a natter catch up with some of the other mums, and get to check out the Uni's sports centre that I've never been to before. Very nice, new and shiny! I'm liking this whole "Being a mum to a Beaver" thing!
