Owen takes a swim! August 25, 2014

I have been super strict with Owen about wearing his puddle jumper at all times this Summer.  I am a nervous Nelly around the water, so I didn't want to even try to let him swim.  He's only three, for goodness sake!

On August 25th, Leah and I took the kids to the pool for the last time.  Leah encouraged me to see what O would do without his puddle jumper on.  I knew it would likely be the last swim of the season, so I figured that there wasn't much harm in trying.  It's not like I would have to fight with him about wearing his puddle jumper for many more swims.  So, we went for it!

That boy took off!  He did so good!  Leah grabbed a quick video of him swimming like a fish.  It looks like I may have three independent swimmers next Summer.  Whoa!!!
