Did any of you give birth to Fish's? I did!

Okay, so at the beginning of the summer, L was pretty confident. M and B, not so much. B would not even go in the big pool even though he could touch. M was stuck at my side in the water. It drove me crazy because I want them to be confident in the water. I am SO NOT confident. Pools scare the heck out of me. And it's not just the fact that I have to get into a bathing suit. 

So I want for my kids what I don't have BUT I want them to earn the confidence in the water. We live a 5 minute walk from the outdoor pool in our community. In the summer time we spend a lot of time there. Mr. M is so good with them in the water. I just am there for support. 

L man in the pool during lessons. He LOVES these goggles

L man going off the diving board. I love the "action" in this shot!
B boy in the pool during lessons. 

In the deep end. He will only be there with a life jacket. Hey, I am just happy he will go in the deep end!

M and how she spends her time in the deep end. She will go off the low diving board and just keep jumping in a million times. I am so glad she is confident.

What's this???? M getting ready to go off the deep end!

SHE IS 3!!!!!!!
I love this shot! She jumped twice and loved it.

I am so proud of all of my kids!

We have loved the outdoor pools this summer. It has been so nice and hot that it makes swimming outside a pleasure.

(and I LOL'ed @ your bathing suit comment! I am just now getting to the point where I am mostly not self-concious of my bathing suited self...mostly. :D)
