Day 526: A New Fishy

We took the kids swimming tonight for Family Home Evening.

It was Baby B's first time swimming.  And this was a quick photo I took before we left the house.  Not the best.  That's his pajama shirt, not a swim shirt.  He didn't wear it to swim in.  But he was happy as a fish in the water.

Except that a fish knows how to breathe under water.  He doesn't.  But it didn't stop him from dunking himself every chance he got.  It was kind of crazy.  He kept trying to use his newfound walking skills to walk around the pool.  But his darling little legs are nowhere nearly strong enough for that.  So, the second he wriggled away from me, he'd fall in.  He'd come up spluttering and coughing and try to do it again as quickly as possible.

Which could have something to do with why he went to bed with nary a fuss nor a peep tonight.

Anyway, watching him love the water was a Joyful Moment.  And Sweet P passed the swim test required to be able to go down the water slides at the pool.  She was so so so proud of herself!  And that was another big Joyful Moment for me, her proud Mama Bear.

Wishing you all Joyful Moments where being all wet is a good thing!
