My Water Babies

The girls have resumed their summer swimming lessons and they are all blooming in the water. Last year, you may recall that Dassi swam a mile! She got another badge today for her backstroke. She has so many badges that one glass frame has now been filled! I can't tell you how impressed I am with her swimming ability. I wish I could swim that proficiently.

Tali is also progressing nicely and really enjoying her time in the water, as is Michal. Today, Shira and I watched all three from the back window of the pool and we had so much fun zipping from one girl to the next, waving at them and seeing if they would wave back (they did).

Give it another year or so and we'll have a fourth water baby trying to earn her wings. Looking at Shira's expression today, I could see that she could hardly wait to get into the water and catch her sisters up. My daughters- the water babies!
