It was so cute watching Matthew walk next door. He refused to let anyone carry his lifejacket ... it was his and he was going to carry/drag it there and back.
The pool was about five feet deep. This meant it was over the girls head. They had lots of fun, jumping and it was good because it forced them to practice their swimming. It also meant they tired out much quicker and usually only half an hour was enough and they were ready to head back home.
Matthew also enjoyed this pool. He loved to jump in, but did not much like to actually "swim" ... just in and out, in and out.
The problem was ... after they had swam here our pool suddenly didn't seem good enough and I had to listen to them beg to go next door all the time.
