We have just completed six weeks of swimming lessons. James and Sophia have completely changed their swimming skills. Sophia has gone from licking the water and choking everytime her face went near the water to going under the water for diving rings, jumping off the side, and pulling herself out of the pool. James can now swim quite a distance under water, some crawl stroke, touch the bottom, go off the diving board and will not wear a lift jacket - as he says "I CAN DO IT MYSELF!" or "I AM GOING TO PRACTICE MY MAD SKILLS." We are finishing off the summer of lessons with James' Birthday Party at the pool. Rocket and Space themed of course.

What a great idea!!! James and Alejandro painted cookies today - thanks to Aunt Becky's great idea. Lightly beat egg whites just before foaming, add food coloring and paint onto sugar cookies. They added red, white and blue sprinkles while the egg wash was wet and the sprinkles stayed perfectly. Thank you again for the great activity idea!!!
