Pool Time

We have been enjoying some pool time the last couple of days, thanks to some friends who have so kindly shared their pool with us. Ella has always enjoyed swimming. Here is a look back at some of her previous swimming adventures. Sorry about the poor quality, they are pictures of pictures, and some are even snapped from the pages of her scrapbook.

She has always done well in the water. She has never been scared to get her face wet, jump off the diving board, or do back flips in the water. She has been able to swim in the shallow end without floats for a few years now, but still used her floats often.

Well not anymore. Ella can officially swim all by herself. Saturday she decided to try to swim in the deep end without her floats. With her daddy and I close by she jumped off the diving board and swam all the way to the end of the pool by herself! She didn't put the floats on the rest of the day. We are so proud of her new skills.

Olivia has been enjoying the water as well.

Although she gets tired a lot quicker than Ella does.

Wow that is so great. I wish we had more access to a pool because I think Daniel would know how to swim by now if we did. He is doing a little better every year so I know one day he will get it down.

Speaking of pool time, you should bring your awesome camera tomorrow and take pics of the summer camp kids playing in the sprinkler. I would bring mine, but why....when yours is so much better?! You could take a nice break from our class and go out and do what you love. :)

(Obviously, I really want good pics of my kids playing in the water. hee hee)
