One of the reasons I love scrapbooking is the photographs. I love looking at a photograph and not only remembering the moment, but also sharing the experience so that my children will grow up knowing that moment too.

This particular photo was taken during my oldest daughters swim lessons. She was 5 at the time and by the end of the class she was able to jump off the diving board into the deep end. I remember sitting poolside watching, anxiously. I remember holding my breath at one point. I remember praying her instructor would move just a little closer so that once she hit the water she could be rescued immediately. I remember watching her not even hesitate when it was her turn. In fact she was one of the only ones who ended up jumping out of her class. And when she was done, I remember thinking how absolutely fearless she was.

Thanks for stopping by!

I wish all the time I could live life with joy and without fear and suspicion the way kids do. It's a beautiful gift. Also beautiful? That layout. Love.
