Little Fish | Summer 2015

In May, we put Landon in his first swimming lesson class at the local YMCA. It's no secret this baby loves the water and is fearless when it comes to swimming, but I am of the mindset that the sooner he is a strong, independent swimmer, the better. When I was in high school, I was a lifeguard and taught swim lessons so it has always been super important to me that my kids have strong water skills. This summer, Landon has blown us away with how strong he really is. We've migrated from a puddle-jumper floatie to a 2 float belt. And really, he could swim without it but he gets super worn out. I'm hoping that by the end of the summer (four weeks!) he will be swimming without it.

I hadn't taken my DSLR to the pool yet this summer, partly because I didn't want to be "that mom" that had this massive camera at the local pool. But last week I packed it along in our bag and took it with us. Luckily, it wasn't crowded and so I didn't feel like a big goober taking pictures of my kid with something other than and iPhone :) I've also realized this summer that I want to invest in a life proof case for my phone so that I can be in the water photographing instead of sitting on the edge while he swims. 

Happy Summer! (I don't want it to end...)
