Well, last years pool frustrations have finally paid off.....and the kids want to be in the pool ALL the time. They are having a blast and we are swimming alot. This one is turning into the snorkle queen, and she picked it up on her own. She is pretty good at manuevering the whole pool with the snorkle and mask now. They stay on their tiptoes in the pool so much that they break the skin on their toes open all the time from rubbing on the pool plaster. We are going through the bandaids...I need to get them some pool shoes. Even their little finger tips are getting blistered from rubbing the walls. But they do not care!! I think they would swim 24-7!!
