Saturday was the start of swimming lessons for Addi and two of her friends, Praze and Delaney. We consider ourselves very lucky because rather than taking lessons at the freezing cold Ankeny pool, with 100 other kids, the girls are able to have "private" lessons in my parent's very warm (90+ degrees!) pool. My mom got some great action shots of girls "swimming." Needless to say, we've got a ways to go, but at the very least, they will all be much more comfortable in the water.

Addison's favorite part -- jumping in!

Here are a couple other swimming pics from the last couple of weeks. I'm so blessed to have a job that allows me to take the kids to the pool for an hour or so during the day. We LOVE the time outside and it always helps to wear them out for naps. :-)
