One fish, Two fish, Red fish, Blue fish

School has started and summer is ending.  Here in The South, the weather apparently hasn't gotten that memo and it is still wicked hot.   
So we continue to live at the pool.

 T-Man's swimming skills have drastically improved this summer.  He can now jump off the diving board and swim in the deep end to the ladder completely on his own. 

Here is one of my little fish doing his back float.

 Fearless will only jump off the diving board if I jump with him, so no pictures of that...but he does approach jumping in from the side with reckless abandon.

 Ahh, my little fish.

Miss B is learning how to be a fish too.

 But first, she has to practice her yoga poolside.  She does a great downward dog.

 She will jump into the pool from the side now and she even holds her breath before going under.  We are working on swimming short distances underwater.  And she loves it.

While we are on the subject of little fish, please meet the newest member of our family.

His name is TommyFish and he lives on our kitchen counter.

T-Man gave him to Fearless for his birthday.
I think T-Man is hoping he will get a blue one for his birthday.

I am so jealous of your boys in the pool. We had Alexander in swimming lessons but he is still very...cautious...of the water. I don't know how to help him to be more confident. Maybe we will have better luck with Elijah and Lily... I can only hope.
