The big kids are getting really brave!

Recently I (Kelly) started taking the big kids swimming in Tuesday nights.  I did the same thing last year, but got lazy about it when morning sickness hit.  Needless to say it had been a while.  The last few times we went swimming both of the kids wore inflatable arm bands to help them stay afloat. 
Kenniston is a little daredevil in the water.  She loves to float around and any time I try to help her she says “I want to swim all by myself!” in her most adimit voice.  Today she went down the slide several times.  One of the last times she came up from the water and right away said “I don’t want to go home not Mommy!!!”  She was so excited and loved sliding!
Vincent is our more cautious child.  He told me today he did not want to wear the arm bands!  I was so proud of him for being so brave.  There were a few times that I got kind of nervous after he slipped on the ramp and he went under the water.  He freaked out quite a bit, but got up and wiped the water off of his face.  He did it two more times and was ok. 
Every time we leave there is somewhat of a fight, but the promise to come back always helps!  Over all we always have a great time.  Hopefully I will remember to take my camera one of these times.
