Olympic Bound

We spend all the sunny days at my lil' sister Rachael's pool and Annie just learned to dive this week.

Well, sort of...

We are not building trophy cases just yet. 

But she tries OVER  & OVER again.


When she is under water, we giggle & someone always says, "Ouch....that had to hurt."   Then when she comes up, we clap & she smiles. 

She came over to me & whispered, "Mom....they are loving my diving!"  And she looked so proud!  I have to admit....when she actually started doing it right today...I knew I'd miss those belly flops.

That my Annie for you! Just gives it her all.
How strange I was just thinking about Annie today wondering if she enjoyed her summer and got to go swimming and here you posted this.
When does she start to school. Kaci and Bailey started today and Kaci missed her first day already with a sore throat and then I woke up with one during the night so I guess I got it from her when I visited for the first time in months. lol
I was also wondering how your dad is doing.
Keep me in the loop...hahaha...I told that to the grand babies and they laughed so hard.
Love ya
Maggie

She's so courageous your little girl! And it's such a great relieve when kids finally can swim savely. Enjoy your summer days - here, it's just rain now!

She is adorable! xo

Nezzy said...

You go Annie girl! I see a champion diver in your future! She's just adorably precious!!!

She is such a sweetie in all that she does. My nearly-12 year old has been swimming like a fish since he was 3 -- he dives, swims under water, jumps off anything.. He's always been a go-getter. While my nearly-15 year old is content to just side on the sidelines and watch. He barely likes to get his head wet.

Hope all is well! Best wishes, Tammy

Determination is a great thing to have! If she hangs onto it she'll accomplish anything she wants in life, even the Olympics!
