Wordful Wednesday-My Newest Swimmers

Welcome to Wordful Wednesday……for more information, see “WW” in my handy dandy tabber box in my right side bar.

You didn’t think I’d forget to follow up my last post without a picture, did you?

Now, I do realize that lately I’ve had a lot of swimming pictures. But that’s all I’ve got. So bear with me.

About Angie

Angie is a CRAFT dabbling, recipe making, WORD loving, sunshine hording, book DEVOURING, Mama to a lot! She's kind of in love with Instagram right now, so if you want her attention, go find here there. {smiling}

    You can have as many swimming pictures as you want Angie : ) I mean, you have 5 swimmers now. That is something to take pictures of for sure : )

    I keep forgetting to take my camera to the pool. Kaishon always says he is glad I forget : )

    There’s nothing wrong with a bunch of swimming pics in the middle of summer…that’s what it’s all about, right? Congrats on having all 5 swimmers. So exciting!

    I was wondering when you were going to show us a picture.

    Now, can your kids come teach my oldest? I can’t get her off the step!

    Don’t you worry about another swimming pool picture. For those of us who haven’t had the opportunity to splash, dive, dunk, or lap in a pool, we thank you.

    Love, love, LOVE it. We swim like fishies ’round here and I have always loved it as a kid and now I love seeing Tristan the same way!! And I just love pools. I could look at pics of pools all day!

    My WW post is a special one. You’ll see why.

    I really am so happy for you that your kiddos are swimming. I have really struggled with waterphobic kids. And now my swimming pool has banned cameras. So annoying! Happy WW. http://weloveiowa.blogspot.com/2010/07/wordless-wednesday-boy-and-his-frog.html

    Is there any other thing to do in the summer besides swim? Great picture!

  28. 28

    That pool looks so nice. Sometimes I wish we had one in our backyard, especially right now!

    I think that picture is perfect! If summer isn’t about swimming then what is it about anyway? (Except for grownups who still have big nasty deadline projects etc etc.) Swim, little fishies swim!

    Is your pool heated? Hope it has gotten warmer for you guys, but maybe my blood is just too thin from being in the South for too long – nothing better than little swimmers!
