A Day at the Pool

Today we spent the day at the local swimming pool. The kids have lessons from 12:30 - 2:30 PM on Fridays; but we ended up staying for another 2.5 hours because we had so many friends come join us. It was so hot out.
We are winding down our school year and also busy attending all the performances and ceremonies from the extra activities that the kids are in (which are all coming to a close for this school year as well)... so I have so much to post and blog about, but here is just a brief fun intermission from our day at the pool today.

During lessons Micah's teacher, Ms. Angie, is working on overcoming Micah's fear of the slide and going underwater. Today he went down the slide 5 or 6 times during lessons and walked up the stairs all by himself (usually she has to walk him up there). Here is Micah followed by fellow student and good friend, Conner.

At the pool they have a big park. German parks as a rule are so cool. This one is not an exception! It has a cool well that where the kids can pump water and fill buckets. Here are a bunch of our friends taking a break from the pool at the park.

The best part about coming to the pool? SNACKS of course! These are sisters Hope and Grace and brothers Noah and Micah enjoying some yummy pool snacks.

Climbing the stairs to head down the slide for the 100th time.
We hit a HUGE mile stone today as Noah went off the diving board for the FIRST time. I didn't capture his very first jump, but here is what he looked like by the end of the afternoon, WHAT A PRO!!

Another HUGE step was Sarah going off the HIGH DIVE! She was very scared, but conquered her fear and did it! She is preceded by our friend, Curran, who perfectly executes a 9.5 SILLINESS JUMP!
