What a Difference a Week Makes

We have been swimming 4 out of the last 5 days!!! The girls love it! But, I am so amazed at how well they are swimming around. Laci took swim lessons 2 years ago and that was it. She cried the whole time. So, I decided she was going to learn to swim the way I did. Swim or stay in the shallow end! She has come a long way! Today she jumped off of the diving board without floaties and swam to the side! It was awesome!! She was swimming all over the place!!!!! She is still holding her nose, but I know she will stop doing that in time. (I was 14 when I stopped holding mine) I was just so proud of her and by the end of the day she was going a front flip!!! Way to go, Laci!!!!!!

I couldn't leave Megan out. Tuesday when we went to the pool I had to rescue her twice. She just walked down the steps and jumped in. The first time was right when we got there and I was still in my coverup and flip-flops with my bag, keys and phone in my hand! She came out of the water and said, "yeah Megan...why you wearing your flip-flops in the pool?" I realized then I was going to have to keep a close eye on her! She loves to jump off the side and loves to go under. When we are at a private pool she will kick all over the pool. She will even jump off of the diving board holding my hand and I can let her go under and she loves it! Here is a video of her playing on the steps! She did this for a long time!

Have I mentioned I love summer??? I do!! This is one of my favorite times of the year and I am loving playing with my girls at the pool and outside!!!

I love summer pool time, too--even if I am in a maternity suit for the second year in a row and the size of a house!! Ha. I was so scared that Lilly wouldn't like the pool so I was very excited when we found out she loves it! Megan and Laci are so adorable. Laci has a pretty good flip going on!
