Swim Lessons.

The kids have LOVED having swim lessons for the past month. Here they are with their first teacher, Melissa. June was especially fond of her! Technically June was supposed to me in the mommy & me class but the thought of having to get in with her right now did not sound appealing. She did great with the big kids, she is fearless. Every time she jumps in she swims to her teacher (just a few feet) and keeps her eyes open under water, smiling the entire time. Throughout her class she would make sure she got my attention and then yell "Mommy, I swimming!" as she dunked her head under.

Charlie was an old pro and he loved having a class with his sister. One session he took a class by himself and he was not a fan. I think he liked showing his sister how things are done. I love my little water babies!

Yogurt Cleaning.

June is the instigator of all things mischievous and Charlie is her side-kick. While I was upstairs getting dress the other morning June decided she wanted to have some yogurt. Since I was not there to help her open the yogurt and get a spoon Charlie came to the rescue. They decided to hide behind the couch and finger-paint the sliding glass door. Lovely! Here, they are cleaning up the mess, I think they liked cleaning up as much as they enjoyed making the mess.

Zachy boo-boo.

These boys love each other so much. Charlie loves having his cousin Zachy-boy over and I love it too. Zach is probably one of the sweetest, kindest, most thoughtful boys in the world. They were thrilled to have their first slumber party with just the two of them, they were so inseparable that they even wanted to share the same bed. Best buddies (cousins) forever!

We drove down to the boarder last month (actually Yuma, AZ), for a little family fun. It was a great time with just the four of us. We hung out in the hotel, played in the Colorado River, and I got some dental work done on the side. Good times were had by all!
