Wordful Wednesday-Swimming

We’ve got a swimmer, folks.
And now every. single. day. he asks to go swimming.
There’s nothing sweeter than the thrill of success.

Which reminds me. You can go here to make a Storybook about your children’s successes. Additionally, if you submit your storybook, you will be eligible for a $10,000 scholarship for your child. It’s totally free and lots of fun!

    BoufMom9 says

    Oh how cute!!!!
    That’s my kids all summer along!

    Mr Linky is missing… I think because you used it on Tuesday (I think you have to upgrade to do more than one day a week…)

    I am playing along!

    great pic angie! it’s way too cold to swim here now, but there’s nothing that says summer more than a child swimming!

  7. 45

    Joy says

    I’m so happy that swim season is finally here! I get to start teaching my baby how to swim. Fortunately I used to help teach kids to swim years ago so hopefully it won’t be too hard to teach my own.

    Good times!!!!

    Happy WW!

    I got a swimmer too or at least I did last summer. We will see if he still likes it this summer when its warm enough to swim.

    More power to him!!! That’s wonderful. I so fear water…he has done a world of accomplishment there.

    Dee says

    That’s great! I have a toddler and he LOVES the pool and wants to go in it every day-BUT he cant swim yet and it scares me to death!

  11. 81

    Jingle says

    Good for him! I was a fish when I was a kid! You couldn’t get me out of the water! I still love to be in it, which is funny because I married a man who isn’t all that fond of it!

  12. 85

    Stacy (the Random Cool Chick) says

    Such a great shot! Princess Nagger loves the water but doesn’t know how to swim yet…she’s getting lessons this summer and she couldn’t be more excited! 🙂

  13. 90

    Brooke says

    If I didn’t have to get into a bathing suit the pool sounds like a great idea to me. Way to go kiddo!

  14. 93

    Mandy says

    I will have to check out the scholarship info!

    That’s great he can and loves to swim. I have one fish, and one that sinks every time, but with a smile. Silly kid.

    Lula! says

    Our pool is being opened tomorrow. It’s still too early for us to be swimming, but I will live vicariously through this picture…of your son…looking like a pro.

    Love that little Michael Phelps! And thanks for the heads up about the Storybook contest–what a great idea!

    Great picture! My little one is BEGGING me for swim lessons this summer…her older sister always refused them.

    T Rex Mom says

    Can’t think of a better outdoor activity they can be doing – swimming is great exercise!

    It’s not outdoor swimming weather here yet – not until after Memorial day weekend. But maybe a trip to the Y is in order.

    Thanks for sharing.

    I am finally able to get on your blog again. My computer has issues! I am so glad your son has a hobby! looks so fun.

    Danielle says

    That is one reason I miss Southern California. Swimming year round. I am thankful that we have a pool, and even though the pool guy has it looking fabulous, the weather has not cooperated yet, so no swimming yet 🙁 All of the kids can swim, thank goodness. What a cutie 🙂
    Blessings~~ Danielle

    We had a cabin by a lake so we had our kids in lessons from birth just so I didn’t have to worry about them come summertimes.

  23. 121

    Laura says

    Life is so much better (in the summer) when they can swim. My kids can both swim well (the twins are not yet old enough) and I am SO glad.

  24. 123

    H.K. says

    What a great accomplishment, especially since I don’t know how to swim!
