Fun in the sun

Last weekend, Angela's buddy Adam had a little incident with his new bike. Ever since, she's been quite concerned about him! But Adam was thinking ahead too, so he brought home some medical supplies so he and Angela could play hospital. Their favorite game to play together! (And yes, his mom and I stay RIGHT THERE so nobody is getting TOO involved in the game!) 

Then it was time for some swimming! Angela and Adam spent most of their time in the pool practicing hand stands! I love these videos, because I can't help thinking that 2 years ago, neither of these kids could swim, much less put their faces in the water!

A few days ago, I stumbled upon a crime scene in the living room. Someone had snuck into the house, put my kid to sleep, then left!

Today she was also practicing floating. I don't know about you, but this picture gives me the willies!

Oh yea!!! the dead man float. I used to do that to my mom all the time. She would drop whatever she was doing and come running so fast. Then I would dive underwater and she would be so mad at me. I am so happy you and Adam got to swim. I was very worried about him. I cried when I saw his lip. You both do good handstands.

Note from mom: I thought since you have older kiddos you might like a reference. The above response just took Sarah 22 minutes to type with lots of prompting and aloud spelling from me, but in the end she is so proud it is worth every minute.

what fun! I hope my Noah will love swimming soon. He loves the water but not floating in the big pool.
