learning to swim

Hello, my friends. Oh, what a weekend! I spent most of it playing with Seth and Maggie (my nephew and niece) and you know how much I love that.

Early Saturday morning, I went to watch Seth's swimming lessons.

He's such a good little fish. And he was so happy to have me there watching him. He listened to his teacher intently and followed her directions very well. I am so proud of him.

p.s. Do you see how tall he is getting? He's almost a head taller than other 4 year olds!

After Seth's lessons, my sister Jennifer and Baby Maggie hopped in the pool for their time. They played lots of fun games like ring around the rosie. The sound of all the little babies giggling and splashing is a very happy thing. Maggie loves the water. She especially loves drinking it. I think she gulped up half the pool.

I used my friend Mo's doo dads to decorate these (and almost all of my) photos and make them extra special.

When I read the title, I thought I was going to read that YOU had finally learned to swim!

Seth is growing up so fast!!
