Wordful Wednesday-Swimming

We've got a swimmer, folks.
And now every. single. day. he asks to go swimming.
There's nothing sweeter than the thrill of success.
Which reminds me. You can go here to make a Storybook about your children's successes. Additionally, if you submit your storybook, you will be eligible for a $10,000 scholarship for your child. It's totally free and lots of fun!

Um, am I missing Mr. Linky?

BoufMom9 said...

Oh how cute!!!!
That's my kids all summer along!

Mr Linky is missing... I think because you used it on Tuesday (I think you have to upgrade to do more than one day a week...)

I am playing along!

I'm so happy that swim season is finally here! I get to start teaching my baby how to swim. Fortunately I used to help teach kids to swim years ago so hopefully it won't be too hard to teach my own.

Good times!!!!

Good for him! I was a fish when I was a kid! You couldn't get me out of the water! I still love to be in it, which is funny because I married a man who isn't all that fond of it!

My kids have asked to swim, but it's still a bit cold here. It's a good skill to have.

Danielle said...

That is one reason I miss Southern California. Swimming year round. I am thankful that we have a pool, and even though the pool guy has it looking fabulous, the weather has not cooperated yet, so no swimming yet :( All of the kids can swim, thank goodness. What a cutie :)
Blessings~~ Danielle

Julie@Momspective said...

Oh, I wish we had a pool nearby!

VE said...

We had a cabin by a lake so we had our kids in lessons from birth just so I didn't have to worry about them come summertimes.

Laura said...

Life is so much better (in the summer) when they can swim. My kids can both swim well (the twins are not yet old enough) and I am SO glad.

Kristin said...

uh oh. now you need a pool.

H.K. said...

What a great accomplishment, especially since I don't know how to swim!

Now, I that I know about wordful Wednesday, I'll be using that for next Wednesday!

Michelle said...

Way to go, that is the most awesome feeling of success to learn to be a swimmer! Yeah!

Are You Serious! said...

♥ My kids were just saying today that they haven't gone swimming in forever... (unless you count that nasty mud water) :)
