Swimming Lessons X2


video

This was the first week of two for Mya and Noah to take swimming lessons. They are both doing extrememly well. I am particularly impressed with Noah as I had planned to take a parent/child class with him but it was cancelled due to lack of participants. So, I opted to let him go into the Level 1 for 4 and 5 year olds (Mya is in level 2 as she passed L1 last year). On the first day, he refused to be in the water but the teacher spent about 5 minutes after class just getting him acquainted with her and the pool. From then on, he has been a model student and has nearly mastered floating on his back by himself. I'm so proud of my little swimmers!

Kindergarten Enrollment


Today was the day that we finally got it together and registered Mya for Kindergarten. It took me a bit to find out where to do that and then get all the paperwork together but is all in order.

Mya is over the top excited to go to Kindergarten. She had me print her very own supply list and would go shopping today if I would allow but as most moms know, shopping too early often means reshopping later. So we will wait until just before the open house.

When we find out if she is going to morning or afternoon class, I will make Noah's preschool arrangements and final daycare arrangements for the school year. All of that will happen in early August. Until then, we will be taking swimming lessons for 2 weeks. The fun just never ends!!

Mya Can Ride a Blke!

She really did teach herself. We got this bike on Friday morning and this is how well she rides already--video is from today. She has spent some time on the red bike with the training wheels (Noah's bike) but I was not able to find training wheels for the purple one. So, guess she just got determined and did it! Great job Mya!

This is a fun video. --No, she did not crash into the garage. She stopped just in time!

Big News!

Noah learned to pump the swing! He can do it when he wants to but it's still easier to have mom push. This is actually last week's news. Mom is just slow getting it on the blog :-)

Matching Shirts for the Birthday Boys

I ordered some items from Cafe Press prior to the move. As life would have it, they arrived the day after we closed and got stuck at the UPS hub until I could call with our new address. WELL, they made it today and there was extreme excitement over the stuff. I got Mya this bag which turned out to be HUGE as you can see in the picture. I also got Noah and Keith matching motorcycle shirts. Both are July birthdays. Noah was WAY more excited than Keith. Here are some shots displaying the father/son look.



Nice evening tonight. Turned off the AC and opened the windows. Gotta love it.

Happy Birthday to Noah! 4 ALREADY!





Moving on the day before your birthday can truly put a damper on the festivities! We went to church on Wed evening and had cake with our church family. My neices dropped by in the morning and brought Noah a spiffy new Monster truck. AND mommy ordered this really cool PJ set from Robin it Red Thread Stitches. Noah has kept busy helping daddy with moving things. He is such a great helper! We love our little guy!!
