Post #1---LPA Swimming Party!

Sunday was our local LPA Chapter 24 swimming party in Plainfield and we all had such a great time! It was nice to catch up with a few familiar faces and chat with some new members. The girls had a blast, especially Ellie. That child is a fish in the water and has absolutely NO FEAR of it. This makes my job as mommy a nervous wreck when she is anywhere near water. Have I ever mentioned that when she was 2 1/2 yrs old, she jumped into Lake Tenkiller when we were boating with my sister and her family! Yes, she had a life vest on, but have you ever tried fitting a LP snuggly into a vest when she is the size of an infant? Makes it kinda rough! Thank goodness someone was right there with Ellie and she was just fine. But, my heart was racing...and continued to at the Plainfield Indoor Swimming Park. She frolicked, jumped, splashed, dove, floated and squirted nearly everyone she was around. It was really cute! I am definitely, without a doubt, putting her in private swimming lessons this year. Who knows...maybe she'll be the next Eleanor Simmonds!

Floating on her back...I'm telling you...this girl LOVES the water!

What great fun they had. Swimming is such good exercise. We had Aidan in swim lessons last year and he will be in swim lessons for a month this year too. You'll have to keep us posted on how the lessons go!

It looks like the girls had a blast at the swimming party! I love the last picture of the three of them together! I can imagine how nervous you must be with Ellie around water. Simon seems to always keep me on my toes lately too - same as Ellie, he seems to have no fear.
