~~ Swim Lessons-Day 2 ~~

Another day of lessons and well, my boys might just be turning into little fish. They are just loving the water and they are so excited about swimming! Jesse wants me to get him one of these red belts. I'm hoping that by the end of next week his instructor will have him trying to swim without one. Michael told me after his lesson he went under 3 times. He was so proud!

~~ Swim Lessons-Day 1 ~~

I was so impressed with how well the boys did in the water this morning.

We actually go to the pool on a regular basis being that 1) it is so close to the house 2) it is 100+ degrees outside and 3) it is free! Jesse has really gotten brave this year. He has started wanting to go under, jump in and tippy toe to the deep end. It is the combination of all 3 of those reasons that they both need to take lessons. Michael doesn't care to go under or have the water in his face, but he tends to eventually do what his big brother does.

They did take lessons a couple of years ago, but I was in the water with them and the instructor. This year I get to watch from the lounge chairs on the side of the pool. They go everyday for 2 weeks and I am excited to see how much they will learn!

~~ Where Have All The Bloggers Gone? ~~

Okay, not ALL the bloggers, but my real life bloggy friends over there -----> in the side bar. It is summer and I know you ladies are super busy enjoying life with your little ones and your hubby's, but I miss you all terribly.

I know, I know, it has been weeks (3 to be exact) since I posted anything either. So here goes! I'm going on a posting spree......

~~ The Long and Short of It ~~

I did something today that I have gone back and forth about for a couple of years. It has been miserably HOT for many months and the last month of soccer and 100+ temps convinced me that this needed to be done. So, without further ado......



~~ Saved ~~

Today was no ordinary Wednesday.
Today was a special day.
Today my sweet baby boy accepted Jesus Christ as his personal Savior. My sweet friend Jeany hosted a Backyard Bible Club and the boys and I were able to attend a couple of days. I am so glad we did. Above is a picture of Jesse praying to receive Christ with two of the students that taught the lessons and lead the meetings. They asked him if he knew what sin was and he said yes and told them it is anything you think, say or do that does not please God. The prayer he prayed was a simple one, as simple as A-B-C
A-he admitted he was a sinner
B-he believes Jesus died on the cross for his/our sins
C-he chose Jesus as his forever friend
I am so blessed and proud and excited and glad that I was there and able to be apart of such a BIG moment in his life.

~~ 4th of July ~~

What a day full of fun and friends!
We started by heading down to the neighborhood park to watch the bicycle parade. We weren't real sure about the parade details, but next year the boys will decorate and ride their bikes and be in the parade. Uncle Tony came too! We spent some time at the park enjoying music, games, and a train ride.
After a short nap, we headed over to P-ville to celebrate with some old neighbors. First we stopped by Brian & Kady's. They had a little crawfish boil and OH, BOY! They also have the most beautiful and one of the biggest backyards I've ever seen. The boys loved playing a little t-ball, swimming in the hot tub and running through the sprinkler.
Next stop, the Moore house--more great food and great friends. The kids enjoyed splashing around, laughing and playing.
It was a busy day, but oh my goodness, it was fabulous!
