Summer is Officially Here . . . and It's at the Pool

The girls and I have spent every morning this week at the pool. We've also spent several afternoons there, too. On Tuesday, we had lunch there, came home for naps (and so that Mommy could do a little work), and we had dinner there. It helps that we love our neighbors, and they're at the pool in the afternoons, too. When I signed up to be a stay-at-home mommy, this is what I had in mind!

The girls are having so much fun! Emma Rose remembers how to swim from learning last year, and Anabelle continues to get more and more comfortable. Emma Rose makes friends so easily with the other kids at the pool. It's amazing how friendly and kind she can be. Today, she made friends with a little girl named Avery. (Avery called Emma Rose "Roses.") She helped some of the other members of the family carry their stuff to their chairs. When they asked if she wanted a cookie, she replied that "it was too much sugar for her." She was so sweet that I told her she could have a cookie anyway!
Anabelle has even started jumping in the pool from the side. It's a little scary when she doesn't let anyone know! She's getting better about giving us warning. Anabelle is also walking out so that the water comes up to her arm pits. She's following in her sister's foot steps and befriends the other kids, too. She has even started to ask for one little girl in particular when we go to the pool. Her name is Grayson (Gracie). A few times after she wakes up, the first thing she says is "Gracie." It is wonderful to see my little girls having so much fun!

This is a picture of the girls after an afternoon at the pool. They are watching 101 Dalmatians.
