Here is James awaiting his first swimming lesson...

Here is James with his leg up high and not liking the teachers dunking...check out her face!

Cooper is in the red and James in blue. They cried the whole time but got put under a lot! Their technique is amazing! This was their first lesson and they not only dunked them but held them under for a long time! Then they give them lots of hugs, they say it is a trust issue..

Phew we made it! We will see what tomorrow brings. They say it is the hardest one...great:)

Another Field Trip!

Here is Ellie with her really good friends Kylea and Madison! So cute!

Here is Ellie and Madison on the bus. I sat with them and they loved it!

Here are the fav 5! Girlfriends are the best!

A good day! We went to the San Juaquin River, the kids had fun minus the fresno state students that had no idea what they were talking about! One of the kids asked this girl why the turtle looked different and she said, "It looks retarted doesn't it"! Isn't that horrible! The teachers were cringing and us parents were dying! Another funny one...One of the kids asked what kind of turtle is that?! The girl said I think it is a "Gala-poe-goes" I about died and said, "You mean Galapagos!"

Garage sale & a good friend!

We had our first ever Garage sale this last weekend! We had such a great time and the kids loved the customers! The cars just kept coming, and this one guy brought his own U-Haul! Some "Garage Salers" are way too into it! That's Jakes feet helping this guy load up our old fridge into his U-Haul:)

A good childhood friend of mine Jill was in town this last weekend too! We had such a good time reminicing. I love it when you have such a great friend you can just pick up where you left off!

Hot Weekend

So excited for...

Yep, a homemade slip n slide!

Professionaly made by Jacob Dean, it was a hot weekend here in California, 90's, and we were not prepared for this, so Jacob, being the inventive, creative man that he is, he found some tarp sheeting in our shed, started the hose, and "Bam" as Ellie would say, a slip n slide!
