Summer Swimming

I have been meaning to post this for quite some time. We have been having a blast swimming this summer. I thought that I had more pictures of all the kids. I will have to get some more but I did manage to get a few of Ian. Everyday I am reminded that boys are different from girls, even at an early age. Ian has always liked to do his own thing. This isn't any different in the pool. I started the summer putting him in a baby float. The girls loved it at this age. They would just kick back and float. Not Ian. He hated it. He even managed to climb out of it. He wanted to walk around the pool and do his own thing. So out of frustration, I put some floaties on him, just to make sure he didn't fall in and drown. He loves them. It took all of about 30 minutes for him to figure out how to keep his mouth out of the water. He now absolutely loves swimming. He will jump off the step and swim across the little pool. He can spin circles and is in love with the water.

I Actually Made This!

My friend Melissa is amazing. She can literally sew anything. She came over today and helped me sew a purse. I didn't even know that you could sew a purse. But I did! I made this purse today.
It even has pockets on the inside: one for my phone, one for my keys, two for pens, and a velcro pouch for other things. I just wanted to let you all know that I am pretty proud of myself. I think it turned out pretty great, if I do say so myself. Thanks, Melissa!
