A Month of Gratitude -Day 23 (Life Jackets)

We went swimming tonight at the pool next to our rental house.  Celia is not a very strong swimmer, and neither Jude nor Damien swims at all. 

But jackets means they are going to bob to the surface if they fall in (we never let them near water unattended, but it will buy a moment for us to reach them), and tonight, it meant a little extra confidence to try paddling on their own.  Both boys started out hanging on...

and by the time we got out, each was paddling the width of the pool on his own.
