Swimming Lessons 2008

Well, it's that time again! Time to go swimming at Jeri's! She is just the best teacher - doesn't put up with the wimpiness or "I cant's" from the kids!

This year Jentry learned the front crawl, back crawl, arrow, how to dive and surface dive! (She learned some other strokes, but I can't remember what they are called!) Jentry is quite the little fish and loved diving!

Haleigh, who is terrified of getting her face wet (yes, still screams and cries everytime I wash her hair) was not so thrilled. After crying, screaming, hiding under the picnic table and clinging to me like a scared baby monkey for the first three days, she finally learned to like it. She has learned to bob, hold her breath under water :), float on her back and dive down to get toys off the bottom of the pool. Today she didn't even want to get out of the pool! It's a miracle!

Smith & Morehouse Adventure!

We decided to head up to Smith & Morehouse for a little family camping trip. By the time we got up there on Friday night there were NO campsites anywhere to be found! On our way back down the road Josh spotted a little "site" off the side of the road where somebody had camped before. So, despite the fact that we had no bathroom for the girls, it was really fun! Grandma, Grandpa and Uncle Jake joined us and brought the canoe.

Josh was the wonderful dutch oven cooker! We had BBQ chicken and vegetables for dinner at about 9:30 pm.

Saturday we put the canoe in the lake and did a little fishing. Jentry was quite the rower but Haleigh preferred staying on shore.

Once again, Haleigh was the only one to catch a fish! Jentry, however was busy catching butterflies!
