Swimmingly unsuccessful...

What the girls did on vacation in one word. Swim. Well, okay 2 words...not swim. After almost 6 years of swimming lessons, Eloise is no closer to swimming than she was at 6 months old...and has little interest to learn.

Esther is a bit braver - and I hope WILL swim on her own by this Summer..and perhaps dear Eloise will follow - but perhaps not. That is okay. Most of my family is afraid of the water and cannot swim(or will not swim).

For now, Eloise loves being in the water - either in the kiddie pool where it reaches her knees or floating effortlessly and safely in a tube.

Perhaps she won't learn to swim - and then I can have a lounge chair companion - working on our tans, gossiping about boys, reading books and People magazine, and sipping margaritas. It is all good.

love the colors in those pics! Charlie had no interest in swimming until just a few years ago, and now I can't get him out of the deep end. It will happen when she is ready-or when she wants to keep up with Esther!

Looks as though they were having a wonderful time. I, too, love the colors. Wish I were there - in the warm weather.
