Swimming – In a pool!

We go on walks frequently with the children.  They love to get out and explore, eat the fruits on the trees, and swim in what ever water is around.  So, if we walk by the river, they want to “swim”.  If we walk by a flooded road, they want to “swim”.  Sometimes we let them swim.  But now we know about a pool where they can really swim!  It costs N$10 or $1 US dollar per child and $1.50 for adults.  So, we decided to try to take all of the children that are schooling here and living here.  That means the 4 youngest (3 years and under) did not go and the children that are the oldest and schooling in the government schools did not go.  The total was 15 children and 2 adults.  We just had one working car but they did not care.  They just wanted to swim.  So we piled them in the car and off we went, to the pool.

The children laughed, jumped, played and even did a bit of swimming.  We had a couple of “swimming lessons” and a few are catching on quickly.

Most were tired and some even slept soon after getting in the car to go home. 


Know therefore that the Lord your God is God; He is the faithful God, keeping His covenant of love to a thousand generations of those who love Him and keep His commands.  Deuteronomy 7:9
