The Pool

Do you know what I enjoy about taking my 3 kiddos to the pool these days?

Hezekiah's ability to swim pretty much wherever and go down the slide by himself.
Playing sharks with Eli and Hezekiah.
Watching Eli play Ring a Round the Rosie with Maggie Beth.
Hearing giggles and bubbles blown.
My boys actually doing freestyle.
Maggie Beth loving to play motor boat.
Jumping in.
Maggie Beth's smile when she jumps in and goes under and her
eyes.......they get huge when she comes back up from being under water.
Having 3 children hang on me when we go to the deep end.

Playing in the beach entry area and watching Hezekiah and Eli have fun deep sea adventures.

I love swimming, I always have. I spent most summer days as a kid at the pool. Playing Sharks and Minnows. Trying to fool the lifeguards while it was parent swim and swim under water from ladder to ladder and trying not to get caught. Many morning swim practices and evening swim meets. Memories of using the black lines in the pool as balance beams and pretending I was a gymnast. Jumping off the diving boards. I have a scar on my nose from a diving accident when I was at diving practice.

I hope my kiddos enjoy their summer swimming as much as I did and still do. I am so thankful for days like these.
