I totally forgot I took this video until Annabel asked me about it the other day. We need to make another video like this, it was so fun for Annabel to make – but this time, we’ll include James, who has turned into an excellent swimmer this summer!
If you can’t see the video above click here.
We only have a couple more weeks until the community pools close…where has summer gone?!
I love swimming too, Annie!
If you don’t mind me asking, how do you get her hair to dry after she gets out of the pool every day? My daughter is few days younger than your beautiful Annabel and she has hair just as long and hates that I make her put it up in a swim cap.
I let it air dry! Does the swim cap keep her hair dry?
It does keep her hair dry … when she puts it on right. We live in New England and the weather is very rarely warm enough for me to let it air dry.
But oh the drama. I am already winning at worst-mom-ever
So cute! I can’t believe the summer is almost over. Be glad you live in California. We had a brutal winter, so we didn’t get out of school until the 27th of June. We had some brutally hot, humid days and more than a few cold, rainy days (like 50, what you would call cold and I would laugh and call spring). What day does Annie start Kindergarten, btw? Can you believe it’s a few weeks away?
She starts the 26th – so soon!
What did you use to record her swimming underwater? It seems like there’s such a range of options, I barely know where to start! My daughter has some fun underwater tricks she wants Daddy to see, but he doesn’t like to swim in pools. (Only lakes, go figure!)
if this is the same video she posted last year (sorry if I’m wrong Heather!) it’s an iphone with a Lifeproof case– their cases are guaranteed waterproof! (I have one too!)
HA! We were commenting at the same time! And yes, they are guaranteed waterproof, at least, they are until your two-year-old chews on it and destroys the seal…
hahahaha great minds think alike
oh girl, I am on my THIRD lifeproof case. Due to mostly wear and tear. I am awful on my electronics and their cases. Thank god for their lifetime replacement guarantee!! our 8 week old pug puppy likes to chew on it. lol.
It’s my iPhone and a LifeProof case! It’s pricey but it’s like a fortress for your phone!
I didn’t even realize pools close in California! I figured the weather would allow them to stay open all year. Lol.
I think one of them still has limited hours, but our community pools (at least, the ones that we use) are at high schools, so they close when school starts.
ahh that makes sense!
She looks so happy!!
