Saturday July 23, 2011- Update: Carter and Ammon are refusing their water wings! They jump off the side and swim! Most of the time it’s swimming at least 6 feet in any direction. We are so glad, and we hope and pray it gets better and better. Enjoy your Saturday.
What a difference between now and last April when they began their swimming lessons. They were so timid and whiny in the pool. We knew that
with children it would take a routine and practice: Ammon and Carter love to
swim. Now in July from the moment after dinner when we say, “We are going to swim.” , it starts: “We’re going swimming now?” “I need my swim suit.”, “ I need my swim
diaper.” , and we love it.
Now that the temperature of the pool is always between 88
and 90 (Fahrenheit of course…I do have some Aussie and other European readers….LOL),
Ammon and Carter want to swim every day. We are so glad. There is also a
special time during the last 5-10 minutes of swimming when they are allowed to
take off their water-wings. They both enjoy jumping into the pool, allowing us
to help them float to the top, then swimming to the side of the pool only to do
it all again, and again, and again.
