It's Pool Time

  I love this picture of Sarah!Jaden is a little fish. 
The little stinker is loading up her water gun and armed with her
 torpedo. I am safe as long as I have the camera or if I am sitting reading. ;)  
This year the weather has been so strange we have not even hit a 100 degrees yet! Our evenings have been very cool also. The pool was freezing on Mothers Day but the girls went in any way. This weekend was their fourth time in the pool. Usually we are swimming in April or the beginning of May.
 .No complaining here! : ) We have enjoyed the beautiful weather. It is supposed to be in the 100's by the end of the week.  Sarah does not know how to swim yet. She loves being in the pool. She told us her foster parents took her swimming and she would float around in a tube. Here she uses a noodle. She is faithfully practicing by putting her face in the water and getting on her belly and kicking. Today she started trying to swim in the shallow end of the pool without the noodle. She can stand in the shallow end and she is very comfortable staying there. She is very determined to learn how to swim. I have taught all of our children how to swim, but they were all much younger. With Sarah being older and having a movement disorder, we may have to hire someone to teach her. This girl is so extremely shy I am not sure if that will even work.  


  1. Cute pics! You are way ahead of us...Macy won't even put on a swim suit!

  2. I think you've sent all your hot weather up here! We have the hottest spring in a long time. We have broken record after record!

  4. Oh I'm so jealous! I LOVE to swim and would spend 24/7 in the water if I could! LOVE these pictures Kathy! You can see her unfolding before your eyes. As painfully shy as she is--the sparkle in her eye tells it all! What a house full of blessings you all are!

  5. Ahhh...Arizona pool days - the girls look like they're having a blast!!
