black and white Wednesday - the boy who loves water

swim Will blw 2 WM

I always wanted to be Peter Pan, the boy who never grows up.
I can't fly, but swimming is the next best thing.
It's harmony and balance.
The water is my sky.

(singing) Just keep swimming. Just keep swimming. Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming.
What do we do?
 We swim, swim..swim.

There's something about water that brings
out the fish in 5 year old Will.
It can be bath, pool or ocean water.
This boy loves to swim.
There are days he asks to take a bath twice...and I get the water ready for him.

He hasn't had swimming lessons yet.
What we've noticed is how well he floats.
He's on his tummy in the tub, goggles on with eyes open and playing with toys.
I do think he looks extremely cute in goggles.

Taken last weekend at a China travel group get together...
the kids wouldn't get out of the pool.
And swam the following morning too.
Fun times!

He is so adorable!!!! I have a feeling he is going to learn how to swim in no time flat. It took Liam only a few tries before he was on his own. :-)

I love all these photos :) Will has the cutest little smile in them - so much personality shining through - it's so obvious he loves the water.

All four of mine are water babies - we can't wait for the pool to open up!

I'm looking forward to photos of Will learning to swim :)
