My brother-in-law, Brian, had to go out of town this week, so the other night I got to help out with Gracelyn and Davis's swim lessons, which I have to admit was a lot of fun. Both of them love to be in the pool. Gracelyn is still getting comfortable putting her entire head in the water (I don't think she likes putting her ears in the water) but Davis is just like Uncle Michael was at that age (and still is thirty plus years later)--he loves the pool. The funny thing is that Davis hasn't quite got down that when you hold your breath to go under, you close your mouth instead of opening it. But he loves dunking under the water and then coming back up. Below is a picture of us at swim lessons where Gracelyn has her pink diving ring (her favorite color is pink). Davis got a green one, though I could tell he really wanted an orange one...
I also realize the photo above could be included in the Half-Nekkid Thursday
photo challenge I've seen in such blogs as Domestic Pyschology
and The Chuckster
Two posts for the price of one....
