Summer finally made it.
We’ve been in the pool before now (or rather, a week and a half ago when these pics were taken), but finally it is consistently warm enough every day that we are getting the most out of it.
The boys love to jump! Oliver was swimming quite well last year but didn’t go far without his life jacket. This year he is jumping in without his life jacket (though he has one on here) and is swimming across the pool.
When I took these pictures, Emery was mostly too scared to take his life jacket off. Then we went on vacation and, very suddenly, he started swimming under the water! He goes several feet completely under the water but, oddly, he still says he will sink if he swims on top of the water. It’s a great boost to his confidence. He feels so proud of himself.
The boys love it and it turns out Eleanor loves the water too (which we have to watch very closely at this point). Yay for summer!
