Summertime Swimming

We have been spending everyday in the pool. Sometimes for hours. And miss Bailey loves taunting Ethan and Grace with the fact that she can swim without floaties and they can't!

But the other day it pissed Ethan off this time. So he ripped his floatie swimesuit off and ran and jumped into the pool. Then he kinda sank. And just as I was getting ready to grab him he made his way to the surface. And got out of the pool and did it again. And again. And again. Till instead of sinking he was swimming! He looked straight at Bailey and said HA!! I AM BIG TOO!

Woohoo Ethan! Yes you are!

Grace then had to follow cause she wasn't about to be the only one if a floatie! So I guess the fighting finally paid off cause my kids can now swim! And I didn't have to pay anyone to teach them either! HA!

WOW! that is awesome! i know ginger could do it if she really wanted to but the sinking at first scares her. What big kids you have. I love the wedgie that bailey has in the first pic, it reminds of erin. She had a constant wedgie growing up that she had tan lines that way

That's a hoot! It's nice that you have a pool so they can practice swimming on their own in their own way. I'm so jealous! What a wonderful way to spend the summer. And I just noticed your ten cow wife sticker on the sidebar and I'm going to steal it. :)
