Bring it on, Summer! Today we finally made it to the local watering hole. No, not that kind. I’m talking about the pool. Believe it or not, for the first time I wasn’t super crazy nervous!

I credit it 100% to Goldfish Swim School. At Luke’s lessons this week I was amazed at how much he’s learned and how far he’s come. The amazing instructors are working on swim safety with the kids in conjunction with National Water Safety Month. The school aims to educate families by calling attention to steps we can all take to prevent accidents from occurring. For Luke, it was practicing swimming, flipping, floating on his back and flipping over again to paddle to the side. He’s not a pro…but he’s learning the concept.

Eden, meanwhile, has graduated out of her introductory class and will soon be on her own (sans mom) for her weekly lessons. Yay, Eden! Especially, yay for mom!

At the pool today, the kids were eager to jump into the deep-ish end without fear. I can’t stress what kind of relief this is for a mom of 3 at the pool this summer with small kids.

Now to get Adam signed up for some lessons. That little shark is a natural born water lover.
