Swimming!!

Swimming is one of my favorite things to do. I joined a local pool and swim laps most days after we drop Aashini off at school. Right now School is out, so we've been taking the girls swimming when we have a free morning :) Aashini is pretty terrified of water. When we first took her to the pool this time, she was excited until I put her in the water. She kept screaming and saying: "Help!" "Help!"...
I look so weird in this picture... yeah, I'm wearing a swim cap. If you have long hair, you have to wear one :) Aashini has started warming up some to the water. She's soooo excited to go to the "big pool" but then gets really scared in the water. The last time we went in she did really good and had a lot of fun :)
Diya is almost the complete opposite. She barely makes a peep when we put her in and she just chills the whole time.
The last time we went to the pool, she actually fell asleep in the pool :)
Summer is fun!

HA! I think Isaac and Diya are pretty similar... not sure if she still is, but Isaac was REALLY fussy when he was a tiny baby. The pool zoned him out and he LOVED it.

Do they offer any types of swimming lessons for kids Aashini's age?

Those pics of Diya are GREAT! I wonder how my kids will be in the pool this year...it's not warm enough here yet to try it out! :)

Sarala used to HATE the water so much and played it so safe. Last summer she learned to swim and became a fish. We'd love to go with you sometime in July/Aug if we can!!!!

Sharon - they usually start swimming lessons when they're older - they're always amazed that we have Aashini in the pool - they freak out when they see Diya :)

Emily - Not warm enough yet???? :)

Brandy - Please come!! That would be fun :)

I love it! My kids are both similar to yours. Joseph was scared of the water and Faith just relaxes in her float. Joseph is getting better, though. :)
