What summer would be complete without....WATER?
There were two water slides that the kids went down all by themselves. And Samantha even went off the diving board for the very first time! She did great! A girl in front of her went off the board and needed some lifeguard assistance to get to the ladder -- this concerned Samantha a bit, but she went off the board and got right over to the ladder without ANY problems!
It's amazing to me how much better my kids are in the water now than they were at the beginning of the summer. Between swimming lessons and simply being in the water (weather it's a lake or a pool), made such a difference for them this year. I can't wait to see how they do next summer!
