Today I headed to the local outdoor pool with the kids for some swimming fun. After swimming around a bit it Jacob insisted that we shouldn’t leave till Violet had at least tried the deep end test. Violet wasn’t interested in going to the deep end, but agreed to do the test. A test she passed, even with the addition of a minute treading water. Of course after that we spent most of our time in the deep end. I was so proud of her. of course I’m also amused by the fact that though I have the freedom to head to the deep end I don’t think I could past the tests the kids have to.
