Swim Day Starts!

"Hi guys, this is Amy. Just wanted to let you know we are planning on starting Swim Day today. Come on over any time after 2:00..."

This was a message we heard on our machine yesterday that cheered our summer-loving selves up immensely! Ella was so excited about swimming with her friends that she couldn't fall asleep during naptime and when I was applying her sunscreen she happily rattled on and on. "I'm so excited!! I love swimming! I love Jared! But Jared don't love getting kisses..." When we pulled up we were greeted by a jubilant Jared running to our car yelling, "Ella! Ella!" and tackling her in a hug. I guess we were all a little giddy with the joy of Swim Day starting.

And good thing we had this day planned, we were in Travis, Jadon and Mikaela withdrawal! To spend another afternoon with them, like we did every day last week at Mt. Hermon, was wonderful. Debbie (our host) had a new Bermuda deck built in her pool (a larger shallow step) that was perfect for the kids and Delia was content to just bob around in her new raft. The table was spread with snacks, fruit and baked goods and we all indulged in these and some fellowship.

I've been on a "What do you love about summer?" kick and I'll tell you: Swim Day may be my favorite thing!
