Just keep swimming





Swimming, we (or rather) the kids have been doing a lot of it lately.

They have had swimming lessons since last Monday, all three girls are enrolled in them right now.

Adison was moved up a level on the second day of lessons and couldn't have been more thrilled because now she's with her best friend.

Ainsley and Abby are both on level one and are loving it. It helps that Ainsley's best friend and a little girl from our church are in the same group.

For me, the most exciting thing has been watching Abby swim. She can be a tough nut to crack and if she doesn't want to do something then it's next to impossible to make it happen. She has taken to her swimming lessons like a pro. She's not afraid of anything and will do whatever they ask.

Bob my head under water? Sure!
Float on my back with only your hands supporting me? You betcha!
Go underwater and get diving rings from the bottom of the pool? That's child's play.

She is doing amazing!

Here she was at the pool yesterday afternoon:

She had me rolling! I was so proud of her for this, then today when the pool had even more water in it she was actually swimming rather than kicking in one spot.

The above video is from the pool at the gym we go to. They have an outdoor pool with a slide and diving area as well as a baby pool. The video is from the baby pool.

We've been spending pretty much every nice work day at the pool. The kids are having fun and I'm enjoying myself as well. It always helps to have friends at the pool for the kids AND the grown ups.

We have been swimming and swimming and swimming and don't see that changing any time soon.

How has your summer been going so far?
