Mark and I have both always loved the water. We had an above ground swimming pool growing up, and I spent many hot summer afternoons swimming, playing and making up dance routines. Now, my mom has an awesome in ground pool, and we go over there at least twice a week to swim. Maggie loves the water, and now loves to practice holding her breath. We plan to put her back in swimming lessons in the fall, when it gets too cold to swim in unheated pools. I want her to be able to enjoy this year round- and I want her to learn how to swim and get out of a pool if necessary.
I love watching her in the water. She loves playing games, practicing swimming, jumping in and spinning in her tube. She is getting an awesome tan, too, despite the globs of sunscreen she wears every time she's outside. I just love swimming!
