One of the things that has made our move easier is having a pool. When we need to get out, we put on our suits, take a five minute walk, and we are at the pool. Emma can now swim on her own across the pool and John has even taught her to do a crawl stroke. Johnny jumps in with no fear and floats until someone helps him up.
Since swimming during the day isn't enough for our kiddos, one evening we headed to Stanford and let them walk around in a fountain. Apparantly there is no rule against this on campus so it is a common sight to see kids cooling off with their feet in the water. It is just more fun when you can walk around in water that seems like it should be off limits. It is also more fun when it is paired with a Jamba Juice!
