About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

Swim like a Fish

   I was so proud of Katie today.  She took her first swimming lesson even though she is quite afraid of the water without her Dora "donut".  She can really get around in that thing, but it's not true swimming.  So, she listened to her teacher and performed remarkably well!  She was very close to tears a number of times (It was so hard watching her face crumble, eyes pleading "Please help me!") but she endured.  She was quite the trooper!  A few times today she said to me, "You know, Mom, I don't like swimming lessons that much."  I explained to her that it was important to know how to swim, and maybe (if we are REALLY lucky) we will be able to get a pool in our backyard.  I told you my husband rocks.:-)   I wonder how tomorrow will go, but as for today I could not have been prouder.  Good job, Katie!
