Our friends who came last weekend gave Benjamin a bicycle they didn't need anymore. So we bought some training wheels, and let him at it. He is having a hard time pedaling so far, but he likes his bike.
I mentioned the possibility a few days ago, and we have since found out that he does indeed get to go swimming through preschool. We had to buy him a swim cap, and he has to wear a speedo-style swimsuit (both due to French swimming pool "hygiene" regulations). We got him a backpack to carry his towel and swim cap in, so he is all set.
He went to the pool for the first time on Tuesday, and from the few words we managed to squeeze out of him, he seemed to have enjoyed it.
