This morning we headed to the pool at Grandma and Grandpa's clubhouse. Sarah Beth has been taking swimming lessons for nearly a year and a half now at Little Otter swim school, and today she was all about showing off her skills. She draped her arms over a pool noodle and proceeded to propel herself all around the pool with no help from Mommy or Daddy. She was delighted to swim independently from side to side and person to person. She loves the water and we're so proud and happy that her lessons are paying off. I think we're going to be spending a lot of time at Grandma and Grandpa's house this summer!
Incidentally, despite slathering her in sunscreen, she managed to get a sunburn on her shoulders and arms. She started turning pink later this afternoon as we walked around the festival downtown, and I had at least 4 people ask me if I needed sunscreen for her with that disapproving tone in their voices. Mother of the year, right here. Tomorrow I'm buying her a burqa.
