Swimming the Jordyn

The last weekend and Tuesday and Wednesday this week I had my four-year-old grandbaby Jordyn here. She loves the backyard pool this summer. Last year, she spent every swim session with both arms firmly gripped around my neck. Today, she was splashing and a-crashing. She swam under water, jumped from the ladder and dog-paddled across the pool. She had a blast and I had fun swimming with her.

The water was chilly this afternoon but she wanted so much to get in a last swim before her Mama came to pick her up. She is a treasure of a child—a gifted precocious child with a zest for life that can’t be matched.

She plans to be a gardener, a flyer, and a story writer when she grows up, she tells Grandpa. She starts to Pre-K this fall. All those years of school ahead will soon be passed. What kind of a woman will she become? We wonder and we pray over our children and grandchildren. It’s fun to watch them grow and change (and scary too!)
