I simply love that my children's faces look so alive when they have spent a day at the pool. Or, in our case every day at a pool for the past week or so. Their little bodies and cheeks are darkening up and when they get out of the bath or shower I just can't help but fall in love with them all over again!
It is with much excitement that I write that FINALLY, just today I now have THREE swimmers. I did the whole swim lessons thing and the many different approaches to help one of mine along with her fear of going under water. Nothing was working and I resolved to let it go. And then it just happened. She sat watching EVERYBODY else do it. Then, a 9 year old patiently worked with her until she got it. I will post a picture later with all three girls with their goggles on under the water playing with each other. It brought me such joy to watch.
This picture is just a teeny tiny glimpse into what it is like when I get together with my siblings. Here are my three girls with Nick and a handful of the cousins! We are out every day enjoying the summer because of the pool!!!!
