We have a swimmer

I have to admit I haven't dared take the kids to the pool by myself yet.   With both Dariya and Alayna on the move it is super hard to keep an eye on both of them at the same time.  My fear is I take my eye off one for a millisecond and she will be floating face down in the pool.  Not a chance I want to take.

Our sweet friend, Amy invited us to their pool and we jumped at the chance to get wet with some extra hands and eyes to watch the girls.


I quickly learned that my little blondies are fair weather swimmers.  The water is still pretty cold.  Aidan swam for a while and Alayna decided she would rather sit by the side of the pool and sunbathe than risk getting cold.  

On the other hand, there is my Ukrainian princess who until last summer had never had the chance to get in a pool.  She LOVES it, cold or not this little girl is going swimming.  She surprised us all by taking off and not looking back.
Go Dariya go, I think we have a fish on our hands.

WOW!!!! Fantastic, Dariya!!! So jealous here...I *totally* need to get Samantha some lessons so she won't just stick her face in the water and inhale the pool. LOL This totally made my day!!

Zeb loves to swim too! We're just trying to figure out how to prevent him from drinking the water. Soaked diapers for hours!
Way to go Dariya!

My Ukrainian princess is also a water lover. I wish we still had the house with the pool. Well, the pool, but not the house!!
