August is always an odd month to me.
All the trees and grass and plants look a little worn out, like all that summer growing has exhausted them.
But then, there is the preparation for heading back to school.
School here will begin on 8/22...it seems like a life time away, yet it is so close.
Where did summer go? But, when will fall be here, already?
It seems odd to be posting swimming pictures now, although it is still summer. My mind is on back-to-school....yet, the reality is that summer is still HERE (and in a big, hot, sticky way!)
Both our boys took swimming lessons for the first time this year courtesy of their Grandma Barb. I have NO pictures of the little, as he did a morning class with Daddy and I was at work while that was going on.
But I was able to make a couple of the afternoon sessions that my big boy was in.
He hasn't done a lot of pool stuff...and wasn't all that keen to get into the water. He hung out on the side of the pool, watching and waiting and feeling safe.
But he did eventually decide he wanted to get into the water. He hates to get water in his eyes...so I was intrigued to see how he would handle this...
He professes to LOVE it now...
Do you remember swimming lessons? I do...lots of them. Several pools, several teachers, evben different towns.
Its quite amazing to see this part of my own past come full circle.
