Swimming Lessons

We have never done formal swimming lessons before.  All of the kids with the exception of M do ok without water wings, but they also all think too highly of their own "skills."  I tried to sign them up for lessons but I had "too many" kids to get them all into one time slot so...

Since all the boys could swim the length of the pool, we joined the swim team at our local pool.  It's very small but perfect for my kids.  The boys are loving it!



It's perfect to take their swimming from "Not drowning" to actual swimming with good form and proper strokes.

D was so sure he was a swimming master.  "Oh I already know how swim."  

Look at his face in that bottom pic.

Stamina boy.  You need some.

Happy Birthday D

This kid turned 13.  

He wanted to go see Terminator Genisys


And he wanted a tent.


And he wanted a cowboy hat.


Happy Birthday D!

The Mighty

You might have noticed that I am the proud new owner of a brand new badge over there on the right sidebar!  At the urging of a friend I submitted a few stories to The Mighty and so far several have been published.

I'm really excited to have found a place that really wants to hear about and share stories like mine.  Life has definitely given me a LOT to write about and I look forward to sharing much more.

You can check out what I've written about so far here.


We witness a miracle every time a child enters into life; but those who make their journey home across time and miles, growing within the hearts of those who wait to love them,are carried on the wings of destiny; and placed among us by God's very own hands. --Kristi Larson
