Summer Swim Lessons

This is how a country boy learns how to swim...


A boy and his dog


The creek was full and he didn't care that the water was muddy OR that we had a snake sighting yesterday. All he wanted was to cool off, jump in, and practice his kicking. He throws sticks and balls for our lab, Naya, every day in this creek and in the large pond, and today he decided it was time he get in the water with her.

Ya know...it ain't a city swimming pool...but we're makin' do with what we got!

Surely it is more sanitary than a city pool! And, I can't think of a better place for boy. Mud, snakes, and all!
