One fish, two fish, pink fish, blue fish . . .

Emily and Caleb are on a swim team, they swim like little fish . . . I am so proud of them!!  Emily is 6 and Caleb is 4.  Emily swims better than most adults and Caleb is catching up fast!  Watching them made me remember my days of swimming lessons.  Who cannot remember the smell of chlorine, wrinkled toes and fingers, and how wonderful it felt to jump into the water on a hot summer day . . . good memories!

Emily all dolled-up for her lessons!

Gotta love those black goggles!

Jumping off the high-dive . . . all by herself . . . so brave!

Swimming underwater . . . little fish!

Caleb, getting ready to start  his lessons!

Splashing is very important - can you see his friend sitting right beside him?

Floating around on a giant yellow noodle!

A perfect way to beat the heat on a hot summer day!!

Have a great Saturday!!



  1. Cute grandchildren and I'm so impressed with what they are doing. I love the black goggles! I do remember back to those good old swimming days and how I used to go swimming on my split shifts when I worked at the Homestead. And there really was nothing better than jumping in a cool pool on a hot day. Gee, wish I could do that today. Nola

  2. Oh how fun! My kiddos were little fishes! Grandkids are too! Love the pictures. Hugz!

  3. What darling grands you have!!

    I love the fear-less jump into the pool :)

    How great that you can be there for your grands... through all their little mile-stones.

    Enjoy the rest of your weekend!!

    Smiles :)

  4. Oh Barb, this is precious, I smiled all the way through!, it brought back wonderful memories of when our grandchildren would come with us on vacation and we took them swimming. Your grandchildren are adorable and I might add look so happy.
    I am enjoying your music, too, so soft and relaxing, i could linger her for a while!~smile~ i hope you are having a wonderful summer, and if you are like me you are staying busy. Thanks for stopping by and for taking the time to leave me such a sweet note.

  5. Oh Barb, they are just gorgeous! So sweet, and swimming so well at such a young age, good for them!

    I'm enjoying your piano music by the way. It's very soothing.

    Have a blessed weekend.

  6. Hi Barb,
    The kids are so cute and I'm amazed at their swimming abilities at their age! I think all children should know how to swim...good for their parents that are seeing that they are taught.
    Hope you are having a good weekend!
    Hugs, Cheryl

  7. Great pictures. I remember when my grandkids were little and learning to swim. I'm impressed that they are on a swim team. Great activity for kids. They look so happy.

  8. They certainly look as if they are right at home in the water! Very cute...great captures. (Good thing you mentioned that friend. I thought he might be imaginary at first. ☺ )

  9. This is great exercise...Do you think they could teach me to swim?? I never learned to swim and I sure wish that I had...everybody else in the family can swim...but not ME!!
    they are just as cute as can be...
    Hey, I'm gonna send you my squash is very good..
    have a good evening..

  10. Such sweet little fish! I admire their swimming skills. I can not swim at all. Perhaps one day I will learn but not today! :)

  11. Such cute little fish!
    It looks like they are having so much fun.

    Saw your previous post of your camping adventures. Yes, Idaho does have some amazing sunsets and mountains!

  12. Oh this was a cute one. Those little grandchildren are so adorable and the pictures were awesome. You do have some little fishes. I loved this one and give them hugs for me. I love Jessica's cute babies.


Your comments bless my day and make me smile, thank you for stopping by!
