Swimming next door
A very special 'first' today!
Our neighbours, who have not long moved in, have three children, one of whom goes to preschool with Bright Eyes occasionally. They also have a pool.
The weather was hot today, and when we came home from church, Bright Eyes could hear the children splashing.
"Hey, you guys. What are you doing?" he called through the fence.
They called back, "Hi! Do you want to come for a swim?"
We arranged a time and later in the afternoon, the two little boys came to our front door to ask Bright Eyes over to the pool. He went, and had a fabulous time.
Things that are firsts:
1. He, himself, was invited, not just as an add-on with his sister.
2. He wanted to go.
3. I didn't go with him.
