This year, we were (once again) given passes to the swimming pool by my parents and grandparents. It’s so nice, as the swimming pool is within easy walking distance, and this year, has been very un-crowded.
Kinsley calls this “the big pool without the fish”. She periodically checks whether there are sharks, crabs, fish, crawdads, snakes or turtles in the water. Just to be safe, you know. Other than that bit of caution, she throws caution to the wind, once in the pool.
Their land personalities switch, once at the pool. Sophie pretty much does this the entire time:
Kinsley swims, jumps, splashes, and generally has the time of her life.
Sophie waits for us to be done.
I coax her into the pool,
and she’s out of there as fast as she can go.
Kinsley continues to enjoy every moment,
and Sophie waits for common sense to return.
Looking through old photos and videos this morning, I stumbled on this video of Kinsley, taken in in July 2006. Aww, gee!
