I now have a full-fledged swimmer! In the last few weeks, Alex has conquered her fear of jumping into the pool.... and at the same time figured out that it's really easy to swim! We've been dragging Auntie Rorie (and Auntie Carrie) to the pool to practice, practice, practice. Alex has declared that she wants to be a swimmer in the Olympics. I think we may have to break our no-tv rule for a few swimming and/or diving events in upcoming days!
As for the boy...While Justin enjoys koala-bearing around with me in the pool, this is what he'd much rather be doing:
For the record, that's a bag of "ray-ray" (raisins) that he's noshing on.
