One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish


The subject of this post is in honor of Dayton's Dr. Seuss Day at school however the content is to share the news of their private swimming lessons to get them geared up for the summer!

Ellie scared me half to death last night as she slipped from the ledge and was saved by her step Mom who jumped half in the water to grab our little tomato as she bounced on her tippy toes to keep her little nose above the water! Although those moments passed quickly they felt like an eternity seeing her big eyes and her hand out reached for assistance.

In the end Ellie was the brave one while Dayton winced and refused to do 'monkey, airplane, soldier' although they both happily sang, 'bubble, bubble, toot, toot, chicken, airplane, soldier' on the way to their cousin's birthday party after their lesson.

I have some video of them at the pool that I will post tonight along with their notorious 'Baby Jesus Meets Charlotte' FHE pictures!

On the B Side: I am so relieved that they are learning how to swim! It's more than a fun activity but a safety issue!

Its so funny you leave me a comment about my slacking on posts right as Im adding way too many!! ok maybe not to many but making up for the slacking. I think I would vote c ..cali breaking off and floating away though. I love the fish pic. My kids put their suits on and thought that they could swim because we've been wearing shorts..I told them the water still hasnt warmed up yet. they told me they wanted to jump in and check. Kids..just have to find out themselves!

You are good!!! Swimming lessons don't even cross my mind until school is out!! I should probably be "getting them geared up for summer" too...
Why doesn't my mind work like that?
