Two weeks ago when Gavin, Genna, and Samantha visited they spent a lot of time in the pool. The little kids were just to the point where they would jump in the pool and go underwater (with goggles on!). Gavin still is wearing floats, but Genna is swimming underwater for short bursts. Samantha wanted to try water-skiing, so we headed out on the boat. To our huge surprise, Genevieve and Gavin wanted to try too! Samantha ALMOST got up –
Jessica went in the water with the kids to help them. Look at that determination!
