Swimming Badges! Yay! Oh.....

Well the boys have reached the end of another block of swimming lessons. I'm starting to think that I am expecting too much of these lessons though.... During the Easter Holidays I took Jack to the sports centre's inflatable fun day in the pool and I was suddenly very very glad I only took Jack and not Tom as well because despite having allegedly completed his Ducklings badges and doing his Stage 1 he clearly cannot swim and freaks out of he is out of his depth. I would have struggled to keep two of them going.

I'm a tad annoyed that when they got their badges this time that Jack didn't get his Stage 1 badge - but only because last week I was told to pay for his Stage 2 lessons. Has he passed Stage 1 or not? And Tom got his Duckings 3 badge... for the second time! Why has he got it twice?

We were out of the pool, the kids all but dressed, and the teacher was with her next class before I realised that the badges were not what we expected. Frankly I was just impressed that they had the badges in stock this time (we waited 6 weeks for Jack's Duckings 5 badge) and that the certificates had been filled in for the first time ever.

But I wasn't charged for the badges this time, and I was for the other two awards they have.

Their new lessons start next week. It seems that they have the same teacher, just at different times now according to the stage they are at. I think I need a chat with her to find out exactly what's going on, because I am utterly confused.
