Swimming Congratulations

A small deal in the overall scheme of life but my son Ashley started at a new school this year which is fortunate to have its own aquatic centre. He'd been enjoying learn-to-swim lessons at a local swim centre but for the sake of convenience and consistency, it was decided to move his lessons to the school's facility.

His school's approach to swimming instruction differs from his past teaching so he's taken some time to progress from the class level he was originally assessed at. He's watched quite a few of his class mates get promoted while he's stayed put. There's been some comments along the lines of "they're so fussy Mum" and "it's no fun" and I've wondered whether I made the wrong choice. But to his credit, Ashley has stuck it out and after nearly three school terms, he's been promoted to the "Goldfish" class.

So I made this little card for Ashley very quickly late at night. It's super simple but I was really happy with it, especially when so little time and thought went into it. If you have any questions about the card, please email me or leave a comment.

Anyway, thanks for enduring my proud mother moment.

Love from Crafty Kim

I LOVE this card Kim, it's got great colours and perfect layout for the goldfish to be the focal point. It's so cute! And such a sweet momento for Ashley - it's lovely to share our proud mum moments, isn't it?
