Every summer, our bank hosts a Family Swim Night at the local pool, for the children who have Kid’s Count savings accounts. At 5:30, they provide free hamburgers, hot dogs, fruit, chips, cookies, and beverages. Everybody eats and plays on the playground until 6:30, when there’s a free 2-hour swim, complete with games and prizes.
The girls both loved the Duck Pond,
but it wasn’t long before the novelty wore off, and our little daredevil decided that she wanted to go down the big slide in the deep end. She climbed right up the ladder, pushing and shoving her way through, with no regard for anyone in front of her,
She must have done this at least 15 times before she finally got tired of it. We were astonished, because until this year, Bee was always too afraid to go down the big slide. Cakes appears to be pretty much fearless, which comes as no surprise to anyone.
Of course, the day wouldn’t have been complete if she didn’t hurt herself. She slipped on the newly painted pool floor, banged her head, and cut her cheek just under her eye. My poor little accident-prone baby!
