Seasonal

Swimming-ly Summer

Its finally summer again.

While I’m not a huge fan of the hot weather, I enjoy watching the little miss get out in her pool and go “swimming”. Right now that’s something that I enjoy. I can even get my feet in the pool and splash a bit with her.

I didn’t learn to swim until I was almost 7. I had been in swimming lessons off and on before then, but I learned to swim in a family friend’s backyard pool. It happened almost as a fluke.

So watching her go “swimming” and learning the basics that I always felt overwhelmed in a class setting to learn makes my heart sing, and I’m more than happy to go out back and play in the pool.

I’m hoping that next year we’ll have a “real” pool out back. Even if it’s one of the inflatable ones. Swimming is good for the health issues that I have, and spending time outside is always a good thing.

Sadly, I’ve not been around for a long time, and it’s because things have been busy. We’re going to health appointments, we’re doing our therapy exercises. Life is good, but life is running by at a racer’s pace and I’ve had a hard time keeping up even with my normal website stuff.

But as the summer goes along, we’re going to have more to talk about. That’s always a good thing.

So stay happy, stay hydrated.

Just keep swimming!
