Oh, my big girl. What a fun summer we’ve had. You’ve been so busy swimming this summer! You had double swimming lessons every Wednesday. It was your favorite day of the week! You’ve made so much progress in your swimming, that you got promoted to level P-2 for the next session! I’m so proud of you. You worked so hard this summer with putting your face in the water and going underwater. You’re getting pretty good at going down to get rings and starting to blow nose bubbles when underwater too.
I’m so glad I got to go with you on your last swimming field trip of the summer. It was so fun riding the city bus with you and your friends to the pool, then watching you guys have your lessons and taking lots of pictures. What a fun day!
You’ve been such a big help with your brother and sister lately as well. Whenever one of them are upset, you go to bring them their huggies to feel better. Such a sweet and loving big sis! I love how you and Morgs have a special sisterly bond, and I love watching you take care of her by finding a place to sit down on the sidewalk while I’m strapping your brother into the car at pick-up time. I hope you two always share a special friendship.
It’s “back to school” time, so earlier this week I read this blog post titled “Dear First-time Kindergarten Mom”. Even though we have another year before you start kindergarten, reading the article got me all choked up and emotional. I think the take-home message was to ENJOY IT, because “it” indeed goes by too fast. As the last few days of summer pass by on the calendar, know that I love you so very much and I am enjoying it.
I’m joined in this Letters project by a group of talented photographer mothers. We’ve committed to writing a letter to our kiddos each month, accompanied by our photos. Please head on over to visit Charlotte NC family photographer and my friend Valerie Rice’s blog next!
