We had some huge breakthroughs in the swimming
department last week! Hooray!
Both kids with faces in the water and under the water.
The last photo is the last day of lesson when
all the different groups do
a song together.

Sorry for the delay in posts we were having
some new camera difficulties.

Everytime the kids take a bath I turn
the drain when it is time to get out.
They never want to get out.
Turning the drain always makes
them hop out as quick as they can.
Wade always says "Hurry Ruby you don't want
to get drained up".
They both are scared that they will go down
the drain even though I tell them they are too
big to fit down a drain.

Funny day, congrats Cousin Erica we can't wait
to meet baby Ava.
Rest in Peace Aunt Mary.
I hope your next life is a happier one.

Ruby in Storybook Land

Ruby set up this whole area to take a photo of
herself in this special crown.
She called the area "Storybook Land".
She had me take a photo and then she checked
it to make sure I got all the parts of
"Storybook Land" in the photo.
Notice the teddy bear on a skateboard?
That was the most important part.

She and I made the crown together.

Greg's shorts as head wear.
