Last week, Alyssa and Jackson took swimming lessons. I was hoping they would pay off and yesterday they did. We had a great afternoon at the community pool. Alyssa enjoyed spending her time diving in the deep end to pick up toys. And after a slow and cautious start, Jackson was swimming on his own sans vest. And while playing in the fountain, Matthew figured out how to stand up on his own (without pulling up on something or someone, for the first time, finally). A great day for all of the Hoy kids (and parents too)!
