Summer fun with the kiddos.....

This was the last week of swim lessons for the girls.  Kayla's teacher injured his foot, so Kayla had a new teacher.  She was a little more demanding than Joe.  I overheard her tell Kayla that she had to try some of the things.  At first I didn't think it was going to go well....but by the end of the lesson I saw that Kayla was more relaxed and she did actually rest her head down to try and float.  The young lady is showing Kayla how to pretend swim in the photo above.  My guess is that this is a technique to get her to try things on her own...even if it is just walking in the water and pretending to swim.


You can see her reluctance here to relax her head.


Success! 
 Even if it was just for a short while.   
This was the first time.. that I know of.... that she has done this.


Maddie has really learned a lot this year.  Here she is swimming with her face in the water.



And here she is swimming without the support of the noodle.


On Friday....we decided to go on a nature hunt in our yard.  
We have lambs wool, or lambs ear, plants all over the outside of the fence.  
Kayla really liked that one the best.  
It is very soft...like a soft  animal. 



Lambs ear on Maddie's ear.



Shhh...don't tell the neighbors....we picked some apples from their tree.






I don't think they will miss them.



Maddie wanted to press her findings in a bag....so they would last forever.



Here are Kayla's favorite finds.


Almost forgot this one.  Maddie is sharing with Kayla.



This is the first time.. in a long time... that Waterpool has let Maddie pick her up and hold her.


And last... but not least....here is a work book page Maddie was doing. She must have become bored...because she started trying to see how small she could write. 
 #10 is very very small.  
I don't know how she did it!

What a Man!


June 25th was our 37th wedding anniversary.  Bob surprised me with a dozen large red roses.  I feel bad because I didn't get him anything....yet.  I saved the petals and I am thinking about doing something with them to preserve them or something crafty.  Love that guy!
