1, 2, 3 Jump!

We had our last Wednesday swim at the Paulo Pool yesterday. I had to sub in summer school and then Aaliyah came over so we were a little late but the rain stayed away and we were able to enjoy the afternoon.

Kyle has been jumping off the side in the shallow end no problem, he and Ryan (and Evan sometimes) decided to jump in together. I got some great shots of that.

Kaitlyn and Aaliyah were doing some fun jumps off the diving board.

Then Kyle wanted to jump off the diving board. He has been jumping to me in the deep end but he just about drowns me when he does so today I told him he could jump to the noodle. He was nervous at first but finally gave in. Amy got my camera and took these shots for me.

We then convinced him to jump without the noodle. Jeanne was in the pool on the ledge and he would swim to her, eventually he jumped in even though no one was on the ledge for him to swim to and he did great! He jumped in over and over again.

The kids also played Marco Polo or Marco Paulo as they so rightfully renamed it.

And a couple of videos of Kyle jumping:

He ran and jumped here, I wasn't quite ready because I didn't know he was going to run, HA!

Yeah for Kyle! Jumping off the diving board is a huge step! Next you need to introduce him to a high dive :) Glad your last pool day was enjoyable :)

So much fun! I need to get copies of these and your Beale Street pics sometime.
