Swimming Lessons

We arrived home from our big trip to Oregon Sunday morning about 5am. The next day we were up and running, going into Harrisonburg everyday for the next two weeks for swimming lessons.  There is a park by the swimming pool so most mornings Elden and I would just go there while the kids did their lessons.  We had lessons during the best part of the summer I thought--when it was hot.  It has been unusually cool here for August.  Normally it's burning hot, but it's been in the 70s lately.  I like weather in the 70s, but in the summer it's more fun to go swimming when it's in the 90s.  The last two days of swimming lessons, it was quite cool out.  The kids were really cold.  Thankfully the other times, it was nice and warm.

Cal and Shanna were in the same class.  Haley didn't mind being by herself one bit.  Well, it didn't seem like it!

Clark and Cal took one set of lessons a couple of years ago, and Shanna and Haley have never taken them until now.  We will be doing swimming lessons for a few more years though as all of my kids will be repeating the same classes again next year. 

One Sunday Shanna dressed up as a bride.  I am not sure if Elden was the groom or what.  It was pretty funny.  I love that Elden was playing with Shanna and I laughed when he asked something about if she was done yet.  A nice bridezilla face Shanna.
