Yesterday we finally were able to get to my mom and step dad's home to swim. We have been running around doing 4-H projects and having play practice, so we haven't been able to get to the pool. Unfortunately, the temperature outside was a bit cool, but the water was about 84 degrees, so it felt like bath water. As long as you didn't get out of the water we were warm!
I was curious to see what Abeba would think of swimming. She was pretty unsure and went crying to the steps, but with some time she realized that this might be a little fun. She just sat on the steps of the pool and kicked her feet, but that is a start. I am sure it won't be long before she figures out the whole idea. She enjoyed the water until she slipped and went under for a split second- then we were done :) Our other "fish" enjoyed their first dip in the pool for the summer. Here are some pictures of the occasion:
