IF YOU BUILD IT.....
.....THEY WILL SWIM!!!
This was a year in the making and it's FINALLY done!
Last year we were given an above ground pool and all we had to do was: take down the pool, transport it to our house, dig a hole, do lots of measuring and planning, buy a new liner, erect the pool, fill it with water and then, breathe a sigh of relief that it is ALL DONE!
*When I say "we", it mostly means.....my wonderful husband, my fantastic boys and a few TERRIFIC friends!*
Since I was the one who wanted the pool so much and this was a TON of work.....I feel so blessed to have such great people in my life! THANK YOU!!!!!
I am so excited to have this pool up! I wanted it, of course for fun, but I also REALLY wanted it to hopefully help Gavin get used to water. As I've said before, Gavin detests water, but he has always done fairly well in water, if I am holding him while he is in it. I really think that Gavin will become accustomed to water a little better now that we have this pool!
Here he is during his first try in:
Do you see the sheer terror in his face?! Poor boy!
Oh wait.....maybe this isn't too bad.
We are taking it very slowly with him. Just one toe at a time...literally! The water is still quite cold and I don't want to make him even more afraid of water, but hopefully by the end of the summer he will love it! That is my goal for the summer anyway!
And, when Gavin isn't being forced to go into the pool, he will be chillin' on the deck.....made in the shade!
Do you see his very own fan? Yep....he is one pampered boy! But, he is so worth it!
