Recently my JT Boy started water polo and it has been a steep learning curve.
The practices are long, treading water is hard, and swimming laps is rough
when you're an eight-year-old boy.
However, he has stuck with it and gotten stronger in the process.
I wanted to celebrate his growth and accomplishment with a delicious summer treat
and was excited to find these delicious Fruttare Fruit Bars at my local Wal-Mart.
Playing water polo has been an excellent lesson in learning - "I can do hard things."
There have been several times over the last month that JT has wanted to quit.
And I had to talk him through and assure him that this was worth sticking with it.
Sometimes he was hesitant to believe me when I told him it would get easier,
he would get better, his muscles would grow stronger.
Last week after practice he proudly announced as we walked to the car,
"Mom, I got out of the pool all by myself after practice today!"
This was huge!
He can get out of our neighborhood pool no problem, but the 14ft deep pool
he plays water polo in is a whole other story.
The deck of the pool is a good 18 inch drop into the water and every day after practice
his coach has to give him a hand so he can pull himself out of the water.
But last week he conquered the beast and his accomplishment warranted a celebration.
So I picked up a box of Black Cherry Fruttare Fruit Bars and a box of Strawberry
and Milk Fruttare Fruit Bars and we had a little party in the front yard after practice.
I also made some cute summer note cards and wrote him a note so he'd know how
proud I was of his hard work and perseverance over the last month.
We had Black Cherry and Strawberry and Milk Fruttare bars for our celebration,
but you can also find them in Peach and Milk, Banana and Milk, Pineapple, Lime and more!
It was the perfect refreshing treat after a long, hard practice and JT was excited
to have a fruity, yummy treat to help him cool down on a hot summer day.
I'm sharing the cute summer note cards printable with you so you can celebrate
the little victories in life and let someone you love know you're proud that they
learned they can do hard things.
