We finally made it to the public pool today, after several years of worry and not bothering! As expected, there was not a lick of shade, and you had to shower before getting in, so sunblock was probably not allowed. I didn't dare, I was so afraid of being told off for doing something wrong! No-one got in with t-shirts on, but it seemed that wading parents were allowed to wear hats and shirts. I got in with them for a little bit. I wanted to teach Lena to put her face in the water. She managed 1 second, and by the end of the session was quite proudly showing off her new skill. Tomorrow, 2 seconds, and by the time she starts swimming lessons next month, she should be happy to do the whole 5 seconds underwater!
