Summer fun @ the Pool!

One of our favorite things to do as a family in the summer is swimming!  Josiah's skills in the water have developed more this summer, although he still needs to learn to take a breath.   He is able to swim half way across the pool now.  We are hoping he can join the kids' swim team next summer!

Abby really loves the water too.  She has a small floaty that goes around her neck to keep her head above the water.  She can be completely independent with this on.  We can push her legs down in order for her to be upright, which I think she really likes.  She has even learned to float on her back without her neck ring and without us touching her!!  Occasionally her face goes under water but she recovers nicely, apparently unfazed by it.

Levi is going under water readily and mostly comes up smiling.  He loves to splash and kick his little legs.  I've even noticed him purposely putting his face in the water to try to blow bubbles.  He thinks this is hilarious!

It's hard to get video at the pools since our arms are usually full!!  We'll try to capture Abby and Levi in the water to share soon.
