So I paid our neighbor Allison to teach the boys to swim…It was a tough job. But within 2 or 3 days Maddy was swimming with no life jacket on. I won’t tell you that I threatened to throw him in the deep end just like my dad did  me to coax him along….But he mastered it and is a fish now. Cameron swims perfect with the life jacket on but take that jacket off and it’s another story. Bless him, he tries, but it’s almost as if his head is too big to keep up out of the water.  He starts off kicking and moving his arms then just like that his head goes under. Drives me bananas, so he is not allowed in the pool, near the pool, or even allowed to talk about the pool unless he has that life jacket on…Why? Because he has no fear. He thinks he can walk on water…or at least he tries to just walk out on the water til he falls through. I admire that though. I still can’t will myself to jump into the pool without wading in first to see how cold it is. But after pulling the weeds this weekend, I bet I run down and jump in that pool…Sorry Jane, just giving you the heads up…

Because we have been at the pool, granted it hasn’t been that many times, we have developed quite the tan…Let’s just say that when I met my mom in town last weekend for the first time at the restaurant, she didn’t think it was me because I was so dark…I told her it was the orange dress that brought out the tan…But later she said, it sure makes your teeth look white. Score! I’ve been going for the white teeth look..

Cameron has become the darkest out of all of us…Check out his tan lines.

We crashed Jane’s pool when she was out of town….Maddy’s favorite is the diving board…

He loves to do cannonballs…I did, too, til he told me how far my splash went when I jumped in….

Cameron loves to look in the “holes”….

  Eh, at least my feet look skinny…

Cameron huffed and puffed til he got both hands on the board. He was so proud!

And speaking of no fear….who falls into the pool head first? Cameron. I have yet to master this type of fall….

And here’s Maddy telling me to get off the chair and jump back in…See ya!

    You didnt get the best picture of all-Cameron just chillin in the pool w/ his life jacket on and how it pushes his lil chubby cheeks so far up thats about all you can see on him: life jacket & cheeks. I LOVED that:) And the occasional laugh that comes from him. I need Cameron to come visit me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
