Swimming, Swimming, Swimming

Our pool is Open! In April I heated the pool for my kids to swim in. My swim school opened up in May so I wanted to let my kids get a ton of swimming in before their pool was full of swim students. They loved it. They are my little fishies...

Dane is 2 and swims with little arms and kicks but doesn't know how to breathe yet on his own... that's our goal for the summer!
Saxon is 4 and has mastered...freestyle, backstroke, elementary backstroke, breaststroke, and his working on his butterfly!

Micah 2 (almost 3) swims all around the pool with his own unique stroke he is a true fish and is one with the water.. he started diving off the diving board at my mom's house last week.
 One of my favorite things about swimming is the tired little boys afterwards... Here is Micah completely asleep at the dinner table.. and Saxon almost there.

May 2nd my swim school opened and I have been so proud of my little boys... they have been really good about understanding swim lesson time... but you know that right after swim lessons is over they jump into the pool.

One of my greatest blessings.... a pool in my backyard and kids who know how to enjoy it!

Happy Easter

 Happy Easter!

Micah and Dane made these super cute bunny ear hats at their playgroup a little before Easter. They LOVE them and wear them all the time hopping around.

 Then Tad and I decided (at the last minute) to do a Easter Egg hunt for the kids. It was so much fun. I am really glad we did it.

the little kids got a head start

 Then Easter morning we got dressed up in our Sunday Best and went to church to celebrate Easter and the resurrection of Jesus Christ. The kids were not really in the mood to take pictures before but I snapped some quick pictures of the boys.


Then after church and dinner the kids searched for their Easter Baskets and had fun playing with the toys inside.


And then they opened a great Easter Package they got from their Grandma and Grandpa. They were in Heaven such a great day!
