Today Alex will start swimming lessons. Two weeks of splashing around at the local fitness center and hopefully he will learn to be a great swimmer. I learned to swim the old fashioned way – my Uncle pushed me in the pool and said swim or die.
This was after one of his lessons last year. What a cute little bug-eyed mess.
I’m convinced Alex was born to make me laugh – as in this photo, who wouldn’t, couldn’t think this is funny, right?
And he has questions and comments, priceless to hear and important to remember. Such as when I told him not to eat watermelon seeds because he might grow watermelons out of his ears if they were dirty, he replied, “And everyone would call me a loser?” Laugh, laugh, uncontrollably laugh……
By the way, he HATES and is scared of fireworks…….so this is how we helped him get through the 4th of July, his Poppy’s yard ear protectors. Thank goodness he wasn’t afraid of the many fireworks displays we saw at Walt Disney World this summer. Maybe it’s just the ones we pop on the driveway.
I love summer – even with its hotness we wouldn’t have swimming lessons and maybe more stories to share.
