On Monday and again today I took Catherine over to our local YMCA pool. This is the "warm pool" where they have a nice long shallow ramp leading into the water that she can play on. We have quite a fun time there and she's starting to get accustomed to blowing into the water (instead of breathing it in). It's not much of a workout for me, but it's ever so much more fun than doing laps.
There was a woman in the water with her newly adopted 14-month-old daughter from China, who had just been in the country one week. What a cutie! The baby looked a little confused about the whole swimming thing, but was having fun too. She reminded me of my niece Beth, whom I haven't seen for 3 1/2 years and I miss.
