Swim, Swim, Swim!

This weekend we were able to spend some quality time with our dear friends Eric, Randi & their PRECIOUS baby girl–Jersi. Some of their family friends invited us to join them at a pool party and crawdad boil on their gorgeous property near Waxahatchie. It was so much fun.

Since Ethan had some fears and difficulties last summer with swimming, we elected to keep him in weekly lessons year round so that this summer will be fear-free, at least in regard to the pool. Yesterday we got a preview of just how successful his year of lessons have been; Ethan had and absolute BLAST in the pool and jumped off of the diving board countless times–alone! The vest he was wearing rubbed his skin raw in a few places, but now we know that investing in a larger, more comfortable vest will be an investment in fun.

Here’s to a swimming success! I’m looking forward to the many more to come this summer.

    Good for Ethan, Mom and Dad
    I guess I had better get the pool ready for your next visit. It is starting to warm up, but to cold to swim. Good Job Ethan
