Summer Time Accomplishments

This summer is proving to be a summer of major accomplishments for Mr Maddox. Over the last few weeks Maddox has discovered new tricks, talents and abilities. He is rapidly overcoming some of his fears and taking risks (eek). 
So far this late spring/early summer Maddox has discovered he can:

Snorkel with a mask, snorkel and floaty. He is very efficient at this and it never ceases to amaze me.
Breathing out of a snorkel is a very strange feeling and he has taken to it like it is second nature to him.

He has been brave and overcome his fear of jumping off the diving board. Now he runs and jumps as though he has been doing it for years. He loves the rush! He is getting really good at his cannon ball!

He has jumped off the side of the pool with regular goggles on and has discovered that getting water up his nose isn't as bad as he has feared.

He has learned to run more efficiently and is getting faster and faster.

He can hit a baseball off of a tee really well

He has caught a ball thrown to him in the air with his baseball glove

He learned to hit a baseball when it is pitched to him. This one still amazes me!!

He can ride a bike with out training wheels

He can ride a dirt bike without training wheels

I cannot believe that yesterday was the first official day of summer and my little man has learned so much already. I am so proud of his new abilities; however, when he learns something new it just reminds me of how quickly he is growing up. I pray I am able to savor every moment with him and not take a day I get with him for granted!!!

A year with children just seems to fly by! I cannot imagine what Maddox will be doing this time next summer (or at the end of this summer).
