The Swimmiest Fish.

It's been really hot here the past few days, which is terrible for our air conditioning bill, but great because it means Grizz's pool is officially open for the summer! Ellie's first dip was Friday afternoon, and she wasted no time in getting down to business. And I do mean business. Crazy, wild, jumping business.

She's made real strides in the past few months, thanks to Gigi taking her to swim lessons at the YMCA on Saturday mornings. She's starting to kick more and is getting better with her arms - we may see some doggy paddling before the summer is out.

This morning I was in charge of swim class though, which was definitely fun. She floated a lot, and flung herself off the wall with wild abandon. We came home, had some lunch and took a nap, and then when she woke up, she was ready to go to Grizz's for more swimming. And because Grizz is a kind, gentle soul who would never taunt or harm a small child, this happened.

But like her auntie Sara before her, Ellie thought it was all pretty great.

Then we ended up across the street at Jim and Judy's house, where Ellie begged to go in their spa (aka Judy's pool.) So we got her suit and her Aqua Leisure floaties and sent her back in until her teeth were chattering. Three swimming trips (and three post-swim baths) in 12 hours. Basically, a perfect summer day.
