Swimming Lessons

Shaelyn started swimming lessons this morning. She was so excited to go - it wasn't even hard to wake her up this morning. I don't think the instructor realized what she was able to do. He would catch her when she jumped into the pool so she didn't get her head wet. I was thinking " let her go all the way" When one other mom explained what her son was able to do, I decided I could do the same. She had a lot of fun and can't wait to go again next week.

On a sadder note, we're remembering the tragedy that took place 5 years ago in New York, Washington and Pennsylvania. I can hardly believe that it has been 5 years already since those terrorists committed such cowardly acts against us. I'm thankful that our younger children can still smile in innocence without knowing what is outside their "little world." Our prayers are with all the families that lost a loved one on that day and for our country as we continue this fight against us. Posted by Picasa

Oh - that is such a cute picture. I can still remember going to swimming lessons and being so scared to jump off the edge. Whenever I smell chlorine I feel like I'm back in Grandville's pool! I'm glad she's having fun!
