"Swim Like a Fish"

Jennie and I took Drew and Mikayla to the movies again this morning to see Jimmy Neutron Boy Wonder. Then we went to lunch at Kanpai - Jennie could not believe that we went while she was on her mission trip. She loves Kanpai, so I told her we would eat there for lunch one day before school started back. We decided on today.

After our delicious lunch, we took Drew and Mikayla swimming! I can't believe how fast my babies are growing up. Drew continues to amaze me in the pool - swimming without floats, doing "tricks" off the diving board, turning flips in the water, etc.

Mikayla surprises me every day with something new she is ready to try. When Mimi and Poppi's liner was first replaced, she did not even want to get in the pool. Since our first swim about two weeks ago she has begun "swimming" by herself - she doesn't want anyone to hold her in the pool, jumping off the side -someone must catch her though because she doesn't like to go under, and now - for the first time today - JUMPING OFF THE DIVING BOARD!!! Jennie and I have to sit on floats to catch her because we can't touch the bottom of the pool and she still doesn't want to go under - but she does it!!! I can't believe how much they are learning to do in such a short period of time!!!

Drew and Mikayla can't wait to get in the pool!

Is this the same little girl who did not want to get in the pool - and then once she did, cried while clinging to mommy with all of her might?

Drew has mastered floating on his back with floats on - with floats off is a different story! He is learning though, and when he relaxes he can do it.

I can't believe my "baby girl" is jumping off the diving board!

We now call both Drew and Mikayla "our little fish"! I am so glad that both of our children now love the water and enjoy swimming as much as we do!!
