Taking a big risk at the pool!

We got to the pool this afternoon after having a conversation about water parks. Apparently Jordan’s big brother has gone to two different water parks. Jordan hasn’t gone to one yet. So I used that as a way to encourage her to work on jumping into the pool and riding the big water slide at our pool all by herself. Kids who jump into pools and ride slides can go to water parks!

The motivation worked!
Not a lot of smiles in her first run down… But I promise, she was happy and begged to go down many, many times. I’m pretty sure she stood in line at the top of the slide at least ten times before we left that day.

Woo! That’s a seriously fun looking slide. What pool were you guys at?

We’re at the MAC pool and Wilson’s Beach Club – the beach club has the slide. So super fun… thank goodness the kids are more comfortable with swimming (we’ve done consistent lessons since February).
