They can be good ... sometimes

SWIM! and Play

The girls are enjoying summer! So far, our summer days and nights include a lot of playing outside. That means playing softball, riding behind mom's Instep bicycle, lots of wagon rides and pool time. Our little pool at least keeps them cool. Now if we could only teach them to swim.


Kaci is having fun in the pool and outside of it.

Kaci finds the hose more fascinating than the pool.


Little Brett just lounges. She just likes sitting in water.

Little Brett



Little Brett isn't as active as Kaci, but she is a ham. She loves to laugh and smile, although she does have a complex about getting her way, something both JY and I need to work on. I think her favorite words, besides Mommy and Daddy, of course, is MINE! STOP IT! and NO!

Leash or no leash

Kaci is into everything.
I
swore growing up I wouldn't be one of those parents who leased their kid.

It looks inhumane, for one. Words like pathetic, trashy, terrible come to mind.

That is, until I met Kaci.

This weekend, the family is going to the lake for the first-ever mini "vacation" away from home. With two girls to watch, and one who is hyped up on life, runs everywhere she goes and is as smart as she is quick, I fear finding her a the bottom of the lake.

And I don't care what anyone says about leashes. I love my little girl too much.

So this weekend, she'll be leashed. I'll feel better despite the scorn of uppity folk look down on me.

And we'll hopefully never have to leash up our child again.
