Evan started the 1st grade this year. The pics are a little out of order. The first pic is in is room. The two pics of him in the green shirt are from the last day of Kindergarten and then the last one is the 1st day of 1st grade. I am amazed at how much he has changed. He looks so grown up. That last little bit of baby face is slowly disappearing. I love listening to him read to me and how he will sound out words. It is precious! Although it makes me sad to see his little life flying by, I am also so thankful to see him grow and learn new things.
We spent most of our summer at the lake house. The kids would go over on Thursday night and would stay through Mon. They both are little water bugs and we spend every minute in the lake or in the neighborhood pool. They have amazed me with their swimming this summer. Evan is fearless and all he wants to do at the pool is be in the deep end. He wants to dive down in 11 ft of water just to touch the bottom. He has been jumping off the high diving board all summer. Lillie started off a little timid in the water but by the end of the summer she was swimming all over the pool floatie free. Toward the end of the summer they closed the small diving board. Lille really wanted to jump so I told her to jump off of the big board. She climbed up and I figured that she would just climb back down but she actually jumped! I was shocked and she loved it so from that point on I had to make her take breaks from jumping.
