Mostly we have been in the water. My pictures are out of order but we started this summer with a trip to the beach and that is where Tripp decided he wanted to use the potty. Biggest blessing ever!!!! It was a breeze. I did nothing. AT ALL! And after Kaylen and the years of struggles, I am ever so grateful!
We have gone out on the boat a few times. Been to the pool almost every day. Swim team has been a big deal this year! This was my first year to be the swim rep for our pool. It has honestly been quite the task. I've learned a lot and I equate it to teaching. Your first year you make all your mistakes and learn how you want to do things the following year. It will be much better next year. Kaylen has been swimming about 3 hours a day - 5 days a week. No lie. We put her in extra lessons to work out a few stroke techniques. I have to say, she has improved immensely. She seems to really like it! City meet is this weekend so we'll see how she does.
Here are the kids on the jet ski with Allen. They were on the river. Tripp really wants to ride a lot. Kaylen will ride but has never been as excited as he is.
My least favorite activity is when they all want to play on the banks. They love it but it makes me nervous. I am always afraid they are going to chew on fish bones or step on a drug needle or something. I also have an irrational fear of snakes... so I can just see them coming up on one. They love getting all dirty and have a blast!
Rylie and Kaylen are still the best of buds. Rylie came over one night and they had a photo shoot. They were cracking me up with their poses. I had to reign them in a little. These two are so silly!
