It has been a hot, hot summer. Every year we buy a pool pass for our park district pool, and this summer we have really taken advantage of having a pool just down the street from us. Lily and Emmy have really become little fishes!
Lily has really been practicing her water tricks. She has perfected the underwater back flip:

This is a summer of “firsts” in the pool for the girls. Lily has always loved water slides, but at the water parks we’ve been to, they end in shallow water. At our neighborhood pool, the slides go into 12 feet of water. Quite a difference!
Emmy has wisely decided not to go down the slides until next summer. This is the first summer, however, that she has voluntarily put her head under water. She is jumping in and swimming, doing back floats and front floats. Yay for Emmy!
Today is rainy and cool. Not a pool day. But hopefully, we will be able to have a few more pool days before school starts!
Have you been swimming this summer? Where’s your favorite place to swim?
