My mom taught Amanda about jumping into the pool and she's very brave. On this trip she was really jumping. She still wants somebody to hold a hand out to her but she doesn't really need to be caught.
Which is great since I only have one hand free and can't really catch her. She usually grabs onto my hand with both hands and I could pull her up if she got into trouble.
She jumped and jumped and jumped while mom and I tried to catch a picture of her in mid-air. It's really tricky with an automatically adjusting digital camera and I really didn't have the time or a free hand to play around with the settings. Because Christiana never left my side, of course.
The boys shot hoops and did jumps in the bigger, colder lap pool. One day while we were at the pool there was a woman swimming laps near the edge that's close to the little activity pool. All Tali could see was her hands popping up after each stroke. She watched the hands going back and forth across the length of the pool totally perplexed. It was so funny!
