Little Swimmers

We finally got back in the pool for the first time this summer and I was highly amused at what I saw. Ksenya flailed about acting as though she were drowning in the shallow end where her feet could still touch. Kabe was everywhere - usually under the water swimming 10 feet or further on his own and loving every minute of it. Ayvri wanted nothing more than to sit in the hot tub. She finally decided it would be ok to jump off the edge of the pool but soon realized that Daddy lets her go under further than Mommy. Brig surprised me. This little boy doesn't like his bath and never has - usually crying when he hears the water running. After just a few minutes in his floaty he decided he could splash a little. Very soon he looked just like Kabe did at that size - kicking his feet and splashing and had a great time until he was too tired and a little cold. Aah summer!
