Sunday was another wonderful weather day and after we went to boat church the kids spent the majority of the rest of the day we were there jumping off of the dock and swimming around. My kids have never had any swim lessons, but I was so proud of how well Jackson was doing practicing swimming. He is very hesitant and cautious in water (which isn't a terrible thing) but I was standing in there with him the whole time he was practicing swimming with no life jacket (only in the shallow end of the lake, too, of course). Ansley started doing well swimming on her own last summer and also improved while we were there at the lake. I basically made Elsie and Vada Belle keep their life jackets on the whole time- even in the shallow end.
