We had an amazing time swimming on the Fourth of July. Elias experienced his first time in the water and was a little hesitant at first. As long as I held him close and moved into the water slowly he was fine, and soon he was splashing around and smiling broadly at his sister. She stayed near us on the steps and practiced putting her face in the water with the help of her new glasses. Look carefully in the last two photos – she’s giving an underwater thumbs up! What a great day.
