Putting Your Best Face First!

Last night we went swimming at the YMCA as a family. The kids had a blast. We have only had our membership for about a week and we have already been swimming 4 times.

Little Miss loves jumping in the pool to Mommy and Daddy. "Again, again!" is her favorite phrase. The older kidlets like jumping in the pool almost as much as their little sister. Cowboy has finally gotten over his fear of jumping in the water, so he's joining in the fun too. So we were having lots of splashing and jumping.

Princess learned a very important lesson about jumping in the pool last night. Do not jump into the pool backwards, or this might happen.

Can't spot her injury? Well, I'm sure you can see it now. Ouch! The ER doctor put in 7 stiches.

She was a super trooper. She did better than some of her brothers when they had to get stiches. When I asked her how she keep from crying she said, "I just thought about my ballet recital." That's our girl!

We just took Andy in the pool for the first time. He loved it.
