We are alive!

Although the looks of our pitiful blog from this summer might lead you to believe otherwise, we are still alive! We have had a fun filled, extremely busy summer!! The last thing I wrote about was our Hawaii trip, which seems like ages ago. Sorry to all of my eager followers!! I know you expect our life to be so much more interesting than this blog eludes to.
Well, as always after a long blog break, I'm going to take it slow as not to overwhelm you or me (mostly me) with 4 months of "stuff". When you end the summer and realize there are 265 pictures on the camera, it's tough to know where to start. So, hmmmmmm...... where to begin.

Way back in June, Keller took his first swimming lessons. He loved the water, and he and Zach got to go down the water slide on the last day of class. The weather was perfect except for one cold day when he shivered as he mumbled the words "all done... all done". He learned to blow bubbles, kick-kick-kick, and row-row-row! Going all the way under wasn't his favorite part of the lesson, but he obliged. Here are a few pics from the week. Daddy of course was our photographer!

Keller's first day of swim lessons, not sure what to expect!
First dip in the pool
I'm sure enjoying the cool water
trying to get him to act like he is happy...
there it is...

kick-kick-kick... i think we were singing "motorboat"
fhewwww... 1 down, 7 more to go

My favorite picture... dazed!
I think swimming lessons are so important for children. My brothers and I started before we could even walk. It is so important that they feel comfortable in the water. Even though he didn't end the week swimming laps on his own, I know he learned some basic skills... which is all I could have hoped for and more.
