4 stars... 2 more to go.

Pierce got his 4 stars at Aqua Ducks last month... and he has 2 more to earn until he graduates.
4 stars means that he can:
1. Jump and swim 5 metres to instructor
2. Swim to wall 5 metres (breaststroke arms)
3. Freestyle for 5 metres
4. Able to lie on back unassisted for 3 seconds (in water)
5. Jump into water, retrieve toy, swim and return to wall
6. Mushroom float for 5 to 7 seconds (head under water).

Here are a couple of pics of him with his friends at the award day... so proud.

Often Coach Dave will show them what is next and then ask "who wants to try it"... here are Pierce and his friends raising their hand.

After they received their stars... they hold a laminated certificate in their hands go underwater and take an underwater picture with their certificate... here is Pierce going under water and smiling for the camera.

His coaches... Annabelle and Dave.

We are still in lessons this summer trying to earn our next star... so good so far...
