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!

    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!

  25. 25

    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!

    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!

  41. 41

    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!

    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 πŸ™ All of the kids can swim, thank goodness. What a cutie πŸ™‚
    Blessings~~ Danielle

    Julie@Momspective says:

    Oh, I wish we had a pool nearby!

  80. 80

    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.

  81. 81

    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.

  82. 82

    uh oh. now you need a pool.

  83. 83

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

    Now, I that I know about wordful Wednesday, I’ll be using that for next Wednesday!
