the first swim, ever!

The first time that it was actually warm enough to use the pool was a few weeks ago and Matt had to be in the office all week. This next to never happens to him and the timing of it all was incredibly ironic, the poor guy. And so it turned out to be me and the three kids, swimming for the first time, in water just barely over 70 degrees. Which sounds warm, but it really isn't. Lips turned blue and the boys were shaking, but we gave it a good go. And I made them wait all day for Letty to get of the bus, because I'm mean mom/fair mom.

The consensus? Everyone just loves the thing! They could spend all day every day just climbing up the ladder and jumping back in. Over and over. Dominic too! Which, he is going to give me a million gray hairs by the time summer is over because there's this whole holding breath thing that is not happening with him. He just jumps right in mouth wide open with his perma grin on and then coughs out the water and... repeat. We are working on it and already see progress but... can never let your guard down when he's around...

The first of many many swims to come I'm sure of it! If it would only warm up and the sun would come out and play...As we face yet another day of clouds and rain. Forks. But without my favorite group of vampires...
