Check it off - Swimming Lessons Done!

Well, we're not exactly swimming yet but we're definitely more excited about the water. Hughes did great on his last week. I was actually able to stay in the area and watch him without him freaking out and getting out of the pool. The last day of lessons, BecBec and David came to watch. He kicked like a rock star, blew bubbles like a fish, and floated like seaweed. We're still working on water in the face/going under the water. All in all, he did great and I'm really proud of how far he has come.

We also finished up vacation bible school this week. The theme was Paul and the Underground Church. Each day we visited Paul who was under house-arrest and Sister Lucia who was worshipping Jesus in an underground cave. The kids learned about what it was like to be a Christian in the early Roman times. It was a great theme and I'm pretty sure all the kids loved it. Hughes did a great job. I wish I could have secretly followed his class around - I would have loved to watch him and his reactions to the Roman soldiers. Banks stayed in the nursery and I'm pretty sure he was about fed up being in the nursery for almost 4 hours every morning.

One last thing, the boys have gone camping for the wkend with BecBec and PopPop so that leaves David and I KID FREE! We're having David's law school study group over for dinner tonight and then the rest of the wkend is for the beach, movie, dinner, and our Goddaughter's, Chandler Steed, baptism. I'll post pictures of our beautiful Goddaughter on Sunday.

So, I'm off to do some more cleaning, stuffing things in closets, feverishly clean the boys' rooms and manage to get myself presentable in a hour and a half - wish me luck!

Oh, don't want to rub it in but WE'RE KID FREE!
