Summer is almost over. And what a summer it was. Sam starts preschool on the 7th, so we still have a few days to enjoy picnics in the park and doing basically whatever we want each day. Most of this summer was spent at the pool, Sam learned to swim and to dive (kind of, see below) and Charlotte showed off six different bathing suits, most of which were inherited. We knew the lifeguards by name and had our favorite lunches that I packed each day. Lord knows I'll probably never have a tan like this one again.
"Do I look a little hippy in the pink one, Mom?" "No? Great."
This little blue ring MADE OUR SUMMER pretty much. Sam wore an identical one until the beginning of June this year, Little Swimmers makes it and you can buy it online at Target. Charlotte got the hang of it at 15 months and it sure buys you some peace of mind as you frantically try to keep a toddler and preschooler within your sight at the pool. Good news is that you can slowly deflate it too, so they work harder to keep themselves afloat as they get older. Don't tell Charlotte that though.
"Look Mom! I dived! My belly hurts."
