This summer, Henry has developed a true joy in swimming. He’s really living up to his aquarius zodiac sign. He just wants to keep swimming and swimming. He loves it so much, he’d rather slowly die of hypothermia then get out of the pool.
Every Saturday he has swim lessons but I brought him a week ago to my mom’s. I thought he would be hesitant about swimming with me but he just jumped in. A few times he was ahead of me and I had to scramble to catch him in time. I’ll admit, he made it under the water once or twice. Also, I learned that we really need to keep his toenails trimmed since he uses them as grips and claws into your stomach as you hold him in the pool.
I haven’t brought Freddy swimming yet. Maybe when the water is a bit warmer. I look forward to seeing them both swim in the ocean when we go to Mexico in January. I feel like Henry will pretty much come back completely water logged.
My sister was by the poolside the whole time taking care of these two:
