Since joining his new school, Idlan felt that he was left behind in two aspects; swimming and music. Most of his classmates were able swimmers and almost all of them can play a musical instrument. It ended up being rather intimidating when he was having PE lessons especially around the pool.
Last week, Anita asked for names on the apartment Facebook page if anybody knew of any swimming instructors. She got a name and made a few phone calls last week. Idlan was keen, so today he had his first lesson.
5 pm on a Sunday was just about right. It would mark the end of his weekend while making him tired enough to hit the bed early for school the next day.
He hit it off very nicely with his coach and they spent the first half an hour on breathing exercises. Idlan was very happy in the end and hopefully in the coming months, swimming in school would become less intimidating.
And now we had to do something about music. We had problem arranging somebody to teach him drumming in school since he had to skip class to do so. We were still trying to figure out the best way for him and it sounded like we may to engage a teacher to come over to the apartment as well .... Unfortunately Dad can't teach him...
