Swim lessons started this week for Trey and Addie. They are both doing great. I don't think Trey will pass off his skills but the fact he is willing to get in the water and try as well as voluntarily stick his head in the water makes me very happy. Addie is swimming quite well and enjoying every minute of it. The biggest challenge is keeping PJ out of the water.
We are continuing to be plenty busy. Some of it fun stuff, like going with one if the Grandmas to see "Judy Moody and the not so bummer summer" The kids loved it. I didn't really care for it but it was still a good time followed by going out for ice cream.
We have also had fun times playing with cousins in our backyard, having water adventures.
We also went with the Huff Clan to Lagoon. My kids really enjoyed it. We made it 6 hours before PJ had a terrible temper tantrum because he wanted to take his seat belt off by himself instead of getting help from the Lagoon employee. He did not get over it. So we made a quick exit you know the kind where people are trying to decide whether to call 911 because the kicking, thrashing, screaming child appears to be getting kidnapped.
Addie tried the big rides this year. She wanted to be brave like her dad and cousin Gracie. She suffered through the rides and then joined Trey and PJ at kiddie land. She admitted that kiddie land is still more her speed. I didn't witness it but rumor has it, she cried hysterically on a few of the big rides.
Trey and PJ liked the cars best
We loved the fact that Grandma and Grandpa Huff paid for everyone to get in. So we let the kids each play one game. They all chose the guess your weight game and were all winners. I figured they would be when we witnessed the employee guess a 5 foot nothing ultra scrawny pre-teen weighed 150. Here they are with their prizes.
I have enjoyed all of our adventures, but I am actually looking forward to a day that isn't completely full of events.
I have a good husband ( a little grouchy sometimes) and three beautiful children.When I am not indulging in the joys of motherhood, you may find me teaching dance to kindergartners or coaching Special Olympics.
