This is the kids' first week of summer and they have already been swimming twice. Monday was the first day dry enough and warm enough to venture out to the pool. Unfortunately, the pool was very cold. It didn't stop the kids from having fun, though. Today we met some friends for more swimming fun. It still isn't warm enough for me to get in past my legs, but summer is definitely here.
Sophie was freezing on Monday.
Holding on to Daddy for dear life
John Curtis and his buddy, Shelby checking out the pool today.
Sophie's class had a little graduation ceremony yesterday to celebrate their year. They showed us what they had learned, received a diploma, and had a slideshow of pictures of the year. It has been such a wonderful year for her. It is hard to see it end, but Sophie is excited about kindergarten.
Sophie got her Dora fishing pole for her 3rd birthday. Recently John Curtis has shown some interest in it, so Taylor thought it was time to get him his very own fishing pole this weekend.
He spent some time practicing in the backyard on Sunday. You didn't want to be anywhere near him when he had this pole in his hands.
The old pro
Yesterday afternoon we decided to try the new pole out in our favorite fishing hole at the Barron's house on the lake.
The Spiderman fishing pole caught a big catfish. We weren't sure it would hold.
Sophie was the only one who would go near it.
Fish #2 with the Spiderman pole. Once again, John Curtis kept his distance.
Fish #3 with the Spiderman pole. He ventured a little closer this time. The new pole works great. Of course it helps that they feed the fish at this particular spot and we throw fish food in when we go there. It helps for the attention span of a 4 year old and a 2 year old.
