Thank goodness

It seems like, every time I get on here to add a new post, another month has gone by! I'm so thankful that it's still July :)

Allison and Abby are both currently in swim lessons. Allison finished the Beginner II class with glowing reports from her teachers and has moved up to an Intermediate class. She is learning official swim strokes and techniques in deeper water. Abby and I are in the Mom and Me class. She is learning to float on her back, kick her feet to swim forward and blow bubbles in the water. All in all, it is very fun and refreshing, especially with the weather up in the 90's!

Here are a few pictures taken this last month - enjoy!

Well, we're half way through July already! I can't believe it! We enjoyed a fun week of Vacation Bible School in June. The girls both had a lot of fun playing games, making crafts, enjoying friends and learning more about the Lord.

After VBS, we met up with Chris' parents and his brother's family for some good ol' fashion camping! We had a great time with wonderful weather. Allison and Abby really enjoyed going out on the boat and riding in the tube. Abby even fell asleep in it!

After camping, we headed up to the Puget Sound to visit with my side of the family for the 4th of July. The girls played with cousins and enjoyed the fireworks.

Now, back at home, Allison is in the middle of swim lessons - she's gettin' pretty good! Next week, she'll move from the Beginner II class to Intermediate, where she'll be learning swim strokes and traveling into the deeper end of the pool. She's already been swimming around the deep end and jumping off the diving board during our family swim nights, so this will be a great next step for her. Abby and I have been enjoying playground dates while Allison is swimming - it is so much fun! Next week, Abby and I will be taking the Mommy & Me swim class - Abby loves the water.

We've got more friends visiting this weekend and a possible fishing trip in the future. Whew! It's been a busy summer! We hope and pray that you are all doing well and enjoying your time in the sun :) God bless...
