Fun At The Pool

Yesterday we started swim lessons at the local community pool. She is quite at ease in the water as you can tell. I am so grateful her parents trust me enough to do this with her. I have multiple reasons for wanting the class.

1) Swimming and being safe by water is important to learn before fear sets in.

2) It is something for us to do together besides just being at home.

3) It channels her energy and learning while guaranteeing a nap after lunch.

Speaking of guaranteed naps, good grief how did I do this with my girls so long ago? haa haa It is because I was 20 years younger. I am so grateful Puddin' came to help me yesterday with the showers and such. I was wiped out for the rest of the day and wanted a nap myself.

Well off to class. We are scheduled for Monday-Friday for the next 2 weeks.

Blessings to you today.


  1. So important to learn to swim early. I had a real bad experience in the water at a young age, and fear has held me captive in the water ever since. What an adorable little girl!

  2. you are such an awsomen auntie

  3. That is awesome to teach her something so important. That will have a huge impact on her life. She is so adorable!

  4. So wonderful that Angel-girl is learning to swim with her dear Auntie.

    Today I had a brief yak with my neighbour, Tim - he had taken his 6 month old nephew to a swimming pool today, and is looking forward to kicking a soccer ball around with little Oscar - a wee way off yet!

    That is such a lovely photo of the two of your together - Puddin's work? Even the colours of your swimsuits match!
