Amecet swimming pool.

Today it was a warm day and it was a public holiday, so the children asked if uncle Calvin could open the swimming pool. He did and after first cleaning it from at least 15 dead frogs, and washing it, the pool was filled a bit and the kids could dive in. It is a pool of 1.5 x 1.5 meters, small, but it is nice for the children to play in. And as you can see on the picture, they did!! Of course it is under close supervision of the staff, especially when the small children in like Catherine(left) and Charles (right) want to come in. Even the mother of Ben was in the pool, this was for her the first time, and she loved it! It goes well with Ben, they checked his leg again, but they felt that the splint was not necessary, it would even be more difficult to handle him. Susan is doing also better, she was so shocked when the bone was broken and she understand that we have to handle him very carefully. She is a very good mum, but today it was so good to see her, for a moment, play as a child again.
