Dance lessons for Selah

A lady at our church has been a dance teacher for years and has decided to offer free dance classes this summer at the church.  Yes, I said FREE!  We thought this would be a great opportunity for Selah to see if it's something she may want to do with out us having to spend a fortune, because for those of you who don't know, it is sooooo expensive to put your kids in dance! 
The first class, she did so good.  I loved watching her!  She tried to do the things Miss Sarah was teaching her, but her awkward little body just wouldn't obey.  The next class was a bit tougher, she is learning the things she doesn't like to do and runs over to tell me she doesn't like that and wants to sit with me.  We are talking now about committing and participating.  I really want her to understand that she can't do things half-way, and I think she is getting it.  This last class was better and she is even getting the moves down better too.
Her favorite part of the class is at the end.  Miss Sarah brings all the girls into a small circle an talks to them about worshiping God with dance.  Then she turns the lights down and turns on some praise music and the girl just worship.  Awesome!
Now, enjoy some of her beautiful movements in still:

Fiesta Texas

We ended our week of swim lessons with a trip to Fiesta Texas!  It was quite a treat to spend the day there with Uncle Matt, Aunt PJ, Trinity, Micah, Emory, and one of Trinity's friends.  The most fun was watching Selah on the rides.  It was her first time to do anything like that and she loved it! Well, all except the Wiggles roller coaster.  She screamed "no, no, no!!" the entire time with this look of terror on her face that makes me laugh even today.  Enjoy some pics of our time there.

Swim lessons 2010

We had the privilege to again take swim lessons from Aunt PJ.  Both the girls did great!  I was so proud of Selah, she looked like a pro out there, hehe.  She loves the water and learned a lot about how to be a better swimmer.

Selah learned how to swim with her face under water, from the deep end to the steps at the shallow end, and can get a ring from the floor in the shallow end.
Rinnah was so brave!  She wanted to just go, as soon as we would get
into the water she was trying to swim out of my arms.  







Rinnah learned how to kick, blow bubbles when her face is in the water, and how to get heads up if she falls into the water!  Well, she's still practicing, but she is doing great.

Thanks PJ.  You are such a blessing.

Please forgive me....

So there really is no excuse except the fact that I have been in major morning sickness mode...
We are so excited to announce #3 on the way! So that is why the new posts have been so scarce. Please continue to check back for updates on Baby.
