We joined the pool this week. It is an amazingly fun and perfect pool for us because of the variety of activities it offers. There is a shallow and sprinkle area for the younger 2, a deeper swimming spot and big slides and diving boards for Caroline and Tru (and, let's be honest, Josh and I too!).
It's a little bit of a drive to get to, but once we are there, everyone is happy for hours.
Ahhhh. Summer contentment.
(Well, not today, because Tru lost the pool privilege, which means I lost the pool privilege. Boo on him.)
So, Tuesday we loaded up, suited up, and drove out to sign up. We pulled into the parking lot and I realized that I had forgotten Bo and Sascha's floaties. BUGGER. The good news is, the shallow end is shallow enough and fun enough that they were quite happy.
The questionable news is . . . Sascha was pretty happy to be without her floaties. She loved going under the water and didn't seem to mind swallowing half of the pool or needing a parental rescue every 2 1/2 minutes. She will be jumping off the diving board before Tru.
So . . . in answer to the question does she love to swim? Absolutely.
Does she still scream bloody murder when I rinse her hair out in the bathtub?
Well of course she does.
