It's Pool Time

My son is a fish, which I love because my dream is for him to grow up and join the swim team, but that's another story for a different day. The other night, Pat and Jackson stripped down to their undies and jumped in the pool. Jackson loved it, exclaiming, "I love cold water!" He has wanted to go in every night since, but I told him after t-ball he could go in!

The child has absolutely NO FEAR. Straight to the diving board, off into the deep end, LOVES IT! Could stay in the pool jumping in the whole afternoon. He is AMAZING about sitting on the side of the pool waiting for Pat to get in position, ready to catch him. I guess if you want your child to listen somewhere, you can't beat them following directions around the pool.

My little Mai Tai has a whole different take on the pool. I don't know if she thinks Pat isn't going to come up once he jumps in, but she screams HYSTERICALLY anytime that Pat jumps in the pool. We got her to sit on the step today, which is pretty amazing since the pool is still FREEZING, but she much preferred just sitting in Grandma's arms on the side of the pool! Just wait until the day we dunk her! Swim lessons here we come!

Too cute! I can't wait to see what Brandt does in the pool this summer, since last year he didn't really know what was going on. I think I'll be taking him this week to the pool at our gym since it's heated ... I hope he likes it as much as Jackson does! Did Jackson take swimming lessons?
