On Saturday morning, the kids and I went swimming with Vanessa, Lily, and Bear at their neighborhood pool!
We had such a good time in the pool. It was both kids' first time to jump in the water this summer. Katie Anne was swimming well at the end of the season last year, but she was afraid to swim by herself with a floatie this time. We'll work on that later... today, I was glad she was using a floatie because I was a little preoccupied with SJ. So, I'm glad that she had the back-up of a float to keep her swimming. She's got swim camp next week, too - so that should help her remember some of those skills she learned last summer.
SJ kept to the steps most of the time, playing with his little toys. At the end of the pool time - after watching the girls jump all morning - SJ decided that "I jump water!" Then, it was impossible to keep him from jumping! He loves jumping in the pool, so I know that he'll enjoy swimming all summer long, too.
We took a break from swimming and had a picnic lunch, too. We had a great time!
When it was SJ's naptime, we cleaned up and headed home. What a tired boy!
