Not Much Going On

Really we have not had much going on, which really is okay for now...
Tanner and Isaac have started swim lessons. We are only 2 days in. This year I decided to do private lessons at 7-Peaks. They raised their prices on normal lessons, so this was not that much more and it is totally worth it. One on one attention, that is just what they need. The only problem is it is a little chilly at 10:30 am and they have ZERO body fat (I wish I had their problems) so they shiver the whole time.

Tanner is doing pretty good. He is starting to learn different swimming techniques and he has shown good progress already. I feel like if he fell in a pool he is at a point where he could save his life and swim to the edge.


Isaac on the other hand has digressed and it is like we are starting all over again. He is working on learning to float, AGAIN. Hopefully by the end of the 2 weeks he will be to a point where he could save his own life if he fell in.
Noah and Sydney have been really well behaved so far, this sure makes it nice.

Noah is going through a phase, some call it the terrible two's. When he does not get his way, he will run up to his room and slam the door shut. If I follow him up there he will climb into his dresser and shut the doors. Today I decided to take some pictures, by the end of it he forgot he was mad and came down for breakfast.

So in my last blog post I said I was going to be better about taking more pictures of Sydney and I have been (look at me reaching my goals). Here are a bunch of them.

thanks for the update! I've got to bite the bullet one of these summers and get my kids swimming lessons. If they fell in the pool they would just end up clogging the filter. NONE of them can swim!

Awww, she is so adorable! I am trying to talk my (big) boys into doing a triatalon at the end of summer...the thing they are most worried about is the swimming. I think I should get them lessons to boost their confidence...

I love swim lessons, looks like the boys are really enjoying it. Sydney is so adorable and growing so big, how has it been with Four? It was really hard for me at first, but I think I am getting a better hang of it, I still don't like to take all four of them shopping to crazy.

So dang cute. I love all of her little dresses. My 2 year old, Luke, does the same run-to-his-room thing only he throws together everything he's ever heard me say, "I go to my room and shut my door and not come out until I say and you go time-out and not funny, okay mom?" I have got to get it on video.

Gosh, Sydney just gets cuter with every picture post! Her personality is really beginning to shine!
I can imagine little Noah running up those stairs and slamming his door! That foto of him inside his dresser door is priceless!!! LOL!
I sure do miss you all, but it's great to be able to see pictures!

Love hearing about your cute kids! Don't give up on your kids swimming! I feel like just when I start to wonder if they will EVER swim on their own, they suddenly surprise me with new freedom in the water!
