Ready. Set. Jump!

Learning new things is always fun. Getting paid for learning new things is even better.
Earlier in the season, Helena gave up her swimmies for the doggie paddle. (That was a pride issue, not a paid venture.)

Today she conquered another fear: jumping from the deck!
She was begged, bribed and bought for the grand total of four dollars!
It took a bit, but the money won over the fear in this case, and it didn't hurt (or help) that her sister and two of her cousins, Hope and Erica, were jumping and bragging and coaxing and bribing, too.
Once she made the plunge (no pun intended) however, she was hooked and spent the next hour climbing out and jumping in.

We (being they) needed to wear tee shirts over our (being their) suits today.
They literally spent all day long in the pool yesterday - coming out only long enough to eat lunch and dinner and then back in til time to get ready for bed. They were beat and pink! Um. . . . yes . . . we did use sun screen.

And . . . . I just love Jenny's camera. It takes sports pics (back to back action).
I want one.
