New Shark in the Pool!

Can anyone spot the newest baby Shark on the Shadowmoss Swim Team? 

Well, there is Claire....but, she was a Shark last summer.  This is old hat for her!

How about now?  Can you see him now?


What about now?  Just there in the splash.  Can you see him?

No, no.....not the girl in orange goggles.

THERE!  There he is! 

The newest Shadowmoss Shark!

With big sis as a role model Asher is diving right in!

He seems a little nervous at times, but is doing really well.  We knew he was ready when we let him jump in the pool to me with no life-jacket and he just took off! 

And you see him there next to that sweetie?  That is precious EV, newly adopted from Rwanda, along with little brother, MV!  I just love our swim team.  There are a handful of adopted children and several kids with special needs.  The coaches are GREAT with all of them!  I mean, who lets kids on a team when they speak little and no English?  Shadowmoss does!  Who lets kids on a team when they have to use a floatation device?  Shadowmoss does? 

Have I mentioned that I love our swim team?

This is such a good experience for him.  He gets to do something without mom, but I'm nearby.  He is doing well with the instruction of the coaches!

And follows Claire's lead.

Claire is learning backstroke this year!

Working one-on-one with Coach Kimmie.

Asher is not exactly Grace in the Water....if you know what I mean!

But, that's okay!  We are just thrilled with him.

So, surprise!  

We love our littlest Shark!
