Summer days and swimming beauties

The summer is starting off to being very busy and lots of firsts already. THe girls are starting to take walks without the backpack-leashes! WOOHOO! (and scary!) So far so good, still working on holding hands when crossing the street or walking in a parking lot, but they do stop when you yell "FREEZE!"-if just for a second. The other fun thing they have decided to do is to break into every babygate, open doors, and create pure havoc. Of course all of this is in the name of fun.
Dancing & jumping off the couch, chairs, ect are one of the new favorite pasttimes these days. River & Skye will even curtsy for you. SO CUTE!
The girls are also really starting to getting into imaginary play with each other. JuJu has become the master of teasing/harrassing her sisters. It is always done with a smile.....
This week we started swimming lessons for the girls. They LOVED it! I actually had to take JuJu out kicking & screaming! ( And since she has learned to use her head as a weapon, I carried her out football style. I'm just glad there is no video of that). Their swim instuctor, Ms. Patty, is fabulous and amazing. She had all four in the pool with her AND no help! LOVE IT! JuJu is my little fish, River is my teacher's pet, Rayne prefers to be pushed around on her float, and Skye is not too crazy about getting her face wet (or sitting next to JuJu-the splasher).

What an awesome feeling it must be to know that you will be able to take them swimming by yourself!
