Saturday at the Pool

The kids came home late Friday night. It was so good to see them again. After a haircut for Adam Saturday morning and a quick lunch at home, we packed up and headed to the pool for the day.

Andrew Goggles

Andrew appears to have a few issues with his goggles, although he never complains about them. He looks like an older person looking over their reading glasses to see at a distance. And I'm not sure why, but he always seems to get his ear folded under his strap. I would think that would hurt, but again, he never complains.


Abby enjoys the quieter aspect of the pool. I love her dimple!


After giving the kids the 5 minute warning that it was time to go home, I looked up to see Andrew run down the diving board, jump and do a front flip. I almost fainted. If you remember, he just learned to swim a couple of weeks ago. He's not entirely comfortable in the deep end yet, so he likes to wear the life jacket. (Make that Abby's old jacket ~ he's quite comfortable in his boyhood.) Adam had never done a flip off the board either, and he was not to be out done by his little brother.


Adam kept landing on his back so he asked Andrew if he could borrow that "pad thing." Unfortunately, the "pad thing" was a little short for him and didn't offer much protection.

More to come on the rest of the is so good to have them home!

Glad everyone made it home safe and sound. Looks like you had a great time! God bless.

Andrew is such the little daredevil! I'm amazed at his lack of fear!
Great shots of Abigail! Kylie talked about her ALL of our trip as most of the clothing she wore "used to be my cousin Aba-gail's. I call her Aba-gail and she calls me Kylie." I just love how she has to explain to me who Abby is every time she talks about her.
Did Adam finally get the flip?

That squished ear is so cute. You get the best pictures! He looks like he's concentrating though.

I think my son, 6, is your son's age and he sneak in flips off the swing or flips on the trampoline. I see your son is into flips too. Mine hasn't done it off the diving board though. Mabye he just needs a life jacket. :)
