fun times!

[youtube=]Yesterday was a great family day!  My kids started swim lessons & even Benji was excited to jump in and have some lessons too.  Swimming is really important to me – I don’t expect my kids to be Olympians anytime soon, but I want them to be able to enjoy swimming and be proficient enough to swim without drowning.  So these lessons are important to Reece & I.  Two years ago, the swim lessons were pretty much worthless – I have higher hopes for this year.  🙂

After lessons, we went for a delightful lunch of pho & boba’s – God’s food love language to me is pho 75 w a medium #6 & and avacadoe boba.  YUM!  Our pho shop had its front window broken & the plasma tv stolen, so my kids immediately went into detective mode looking for clues as to who “stole the cookie from the cookie jar.”  😉  After pho, Isabell had a playdate w a friend and the boys & I planted our little garden.  They played w the neighbors while I studied greek.  It was an all around delightful day!  May God kiss your day today, as well. 



Shouldn’t “who stole the cookie from the cookie jar” be “who stole the pho from the boba jar?”

We took Derek swimming for the first time on Saturday – he LOVED it. Funny story, when I was about 3 years old, my dad told me he was going to teach me how to swim on a give day. We went to my aunt’s pool, he threw me in and said “swim.” After about an hour of almost drowning, I picked it up quickly. But in today’s world, you would probably have social services knocking on your door if you did that.


maybe boba is vietnamese for cookie. 🙂


As for swimming, I also had the immersion lesson at about 2 or 3, but without as much trauma. maybe it was a generational thing. 😉
