Aimee swims in her first Swimming Gala

On Thursday 15 March we enjoyed watching Aimee swim in her first Swimming Gala organised by the Sports Department at her school for children in Years 3 and 4.

Regulars to the leather-blog will remember Aimee has only just learnt to swim, so it was a great achievement for her to be picked to compete in not one, but two of the Relay races. She also swam very well against some of her classmates in the individual Breast-stroke race.

The video clip above shows Aimee getting her team off to a good start in the Freestyle Relay which her team did go on to win. One of the kids got a bit overexcited and tried to do another length when they'd already won - you can see the looks of amusement on the Senior kids faces and hear one of the sports staff frantically blowing her whistle to stop him!

My mum came along to the Gala too as she is here visiting for a couple of weeks. Mum has been overloaded with school stuff this week as we've been into school to observe some of Aimee's lessons as part of the Observation Week, had the Swim Gala and also Ollie's Assembly (next post). Next week we'll be off to see some as-yet-unvisited-by-the-leathers tourist stuff. I'll let you know what we see next week.
