Obviously we have been swimming A LOT. Seems like that is what most days are full of. Now that swimming lessons are over (do you see the picture where the swim instructor is all "What the hell have I gotten myself into?") and Luke got his stitch, swimming has been missed so much, especially since the boys have been stuck inside with the temps being over 100 degrees.
Just over a month ago, the boys needed their floaties. After their first swim lesson FLOATIES were GONE! No more floaties for us, although it makes swim time less enjoyable for me. I feel like all I do is count their heads to be sure no one is under.
They swim like little fishes now. They try new things all the time. Jax's new thing is doing somersaults under the water. Lucas likes to swim even without his goggles, and loves to jump in with Don. Wyatt seems to be the strongest swimmer out of the three, his form seems best, but he lacks the confidence and walks the wall inside the pool area.
A couple weeks ago, we bought a summer pool at Walmart and set it up in the backyard. Some little people touched the timer so we have since had to empty the pool, but the idea is awesome and was fun until the green water ruined it.
This summer the boys have begun to hang out with some new friends. We have seen lots of the Haley, Sami and Lexi at the parks, birthday parties and even at Lake Mead to mention just a few. The girls are about a year and a half younger than the boys, but they all play so well together.
So much summer fun.
