We've been spending about 4 hours a day in the pool since purchasing these new life vests. Wearing them, the kids are almost completely independent, which means I have my hands free to enjoy swimming as well.
Here, I'll let the pictures tell you about it.
In other news, we had friends over last night. They stayed until after 1 in the morning. I love sitting up talking, snacking, reminiscing. We even played our old original nintendo. They have 3 kids, and all the children stayed up too, playing together. It was a strange feeling when all the kids went off together to play, even the littlest. Us grownups actually had plenty of time to talk! There is stamp ink smeared on my counter, playdough on the floor, and toys are everywhere. Dishes are piled high. But my heart is full and happy.
