You can do it!

J has had an issue with the pool for years. We have had lessons by a myriad of people to no success.

This trip something clicked.

He is so proud of himself! I am too!

In the course of one hour, the child went from doggie paddling to full on, face in the water, taking breaths swimming.


To celebrate we went to the Green at Seaside and had snow cones.
I had a snow cone that tasted like Peaches-N-Cream. Peach ice topped with sweetened condensed milk, SOOOO yummy. It tasted like homemade peach ice cream. C invented a new treat of vanilla ice topped with the sweetened condensed milk and chocolate sauce. It tasted like an ice cream sundae! J had rainbow ice, but decided that mine tasted better, so Mommy gave hers up for the BIG, swimming boy.

While we sat and listened to the concert, J decided that his new name is J Swim-o, C is C-o and I am Mom-o. ( Little Mr. told Lawyer's wife that she is Big mom-o! She decided that was NOT funny and he needed to try again.)
