Callum absolutely adores swimming and used to go once a week as part of his therapy when we were in California. Since we've been back we've been to the pool a few times but not had formal lessons. A few months ago we had a visit from a PT and she mentioned swimming lessons for kids with disabilities, we got his name on the list straight away but were expecting a very long wait.

Well yesterday we got a call to say that his name is now at the top of the list and can we start on Wednesday! Officially he can't start until he's 5, but as his birthday is on Saturday they're not going to quibble over 3 days. He's going to get a 30 minute one on one lesson once a week for the next 10 weeks and we'll review after that. Callum was almost swimming by himself when we were in California so it'll be exciting to see him back in the water.

I think Mark may want to accompany us to one or more of the sessions as the lessons are held at Manchester United's training ground, which are not open to the public.

The only bad thing about it is that Wednesday is also donkey riding day, so it looks like we'll only be able to go to the once a month Saturday sessions for the time being.
