Olivia's swimming lesson

Olivia had her very first swimming lesson today. After a VERY traumatic fall into an inground pool last summer, Olivia has had a fear of the water, and will not leave the stairs of our pool, not even on my hip. I signed her up for swimming lessons at her gymnastics place, Gym Ken, because her teacher, Miss Kara, is the swim instructor, and I figured that Olivia trusted her! I'm so happy I did!

Learning to swim across the pool with Miss kara's help...

And then Miss Kara let go of her hands, and Olivia was swimming alone, and didn't panic...

At the end of the lesson, she had to jump in the pool, and she did it!! Her face went in the water, and she didn't even care....I'm so proud of her!

I'm so proud of my girl, and can't wait to see how well she does next week!!

strawberry picking

Olivia, Bella, and I went strawberry picking today (Lexi slept over a friends house last night! It was gorgeous out...a bit sunny, but the humidity thats been killing us broke last it was perfect! Olivia doesn't actually EAT strawberries, but was very serious about picking them...and on the way home, claimed to be an 'expert strawberry picker'...Bella, well, she ate a whoooooole lot of them, lol!

I think that Bella ate more (and wore more, lol) strawberries than we brought home, lol...

In need of a tubby, lol...

Going home...

Bella's been a bit of a bear today...I don't know if its the 'terrible two's' coming early, or what...but oy! Right before I took these pictures, she said to me 'I crabby, mommy', at least she knows it!!
I did a little different processing on these images...
