Splish, Splash

Well, we made it through swim lessons. Despite some very cold days, split bleeding toes, and a maternity suit that seemed to get smaller everyday. (I told my mother-in-law that you know you are wearing a maternity suit when you pick up the swim bottoms and you can't tell which side is for your rear--both sides looked equally huge).
My girls are not exactly little fish but they are improving each summer. I could especially tell June was making real progress as she would put her head under the water a lot now; we just have to work on the actual swimming technique. Robyn is much more hesitant but still doing well, and Ivory loves the water even if she won't blow a single bubble. My mother-in-law is certain we are all going to drown since I myself didn't learn how to swim well until college. I think she actually feared that I was the one taking Ivory in the pool. However, I am just fine in the water, no worries and at the moment I have extra buoyancy (I don't think you could sink this belly if you tried).
I didn't get any pictures until the last day because I was usually in the water. The last day was so nice too, it was the perfect weather for a free swim and Tyler got to come too. It was really fun, and I even managed to escape being photographed (lucky you guys). But here are a couple pictures of our splish splashing day. The cherry suit was the most popular at the pool. There were two others in her group that had the same suit and several others in the pool with the cherries. Target must have made a fortune on that suit.

One more thing on my list to get done before the baby arrives. Swim lessons--check.

I have to say that you are a super blogger- I can't keep up with your posts! Way to go on getting out there in a swim suit being prego. I'm not sure what I will do this summer!

I always wanted swim lessons when I was younger. I think they would help with the fear of water I have now.

I love that little cherries suit!

Next year I'm not going to do the first session. It was cold and my kids normally cried they whole way home. It was fun to have the same session with Emilie and you.

I think I have mentioned before that I just love how you do all your little girls hair, if I have one someday, I want to copy you

The cherry swimsuit is definitely very cute -- my three 4 year old nieces all have that suit - I agree that Target must have made a fortune from that suit this summer!
