Its come around again and this one is the biggy!
Oh yes its the School Summer Holiday! *eeek!*
We find school holidays tough!
DS is out of his normal routine so he can get often get anxious causing bouts of him being angry, frustrated and upset.
However, I had planned a few days in Spain with him. The part of Spain we were going is very quiet, away from the hustle and bustle of the tourist areas, a bit out in the sticks really with pretty much our own pool.
DS loved it! He dealt with the flight very well as he always does and enjoyed hearing his splashes in the pool as the only sound - he even said a new word "pool"! (if that doesn't deserve a new toy washing machine then there is no justice in this world!!)
The holiday in the sun was a huge success!
Then on day 2, something amazingly special happened!
Out of nowehere, DS put his face in the water and lifted it out again. I handed him a towel to dry his face which he did, then put his face in the water again, repeating this pattern.
Then on day 3, he was swimming under water! Chuffed to bits with his little self isn't the words! He did it all day which is great for him but scary for me! I was forever scooping him up out of the water because I felt he had been under for too long!
This week Ive got our very first real camping trip planned so as usual, I will start preparing him for it a few days before showing pictures of camping and telling camping stories so he knows what to expect.
Only 6 more weeks to go! Ha!
Have a good weekend!
