Finley took swimming lessons for the fist time in June at our local rec center. My little fearless fish did excellent. She is just like her Mommy and LOVES water! She had so much fun and I loved watching her jump, dive, splash, kick, go under water, and learn. It was a bit of a beating to go to the water park every day for two weeks (Monday-Thursday), especially since the first week was also when Kyle was out of town. And we stayed and played after lessons a couple of the days. That's right. Me all by myself, at a water park, with a (barely) 4 year old, 2.5 year old, and 8 month old. Fun times!!! Thankfully there were some sweet friends there who lent a hand...or two! So blessed by all our sweet friends.

|On day one I promised her some cotton candy from the concession stand on her last day if she tried her best! Holy cow that's a lot of cotton candy!|
On the last day, "Show Off Day," I was dreadfully sick. Like kill me now sick. Kyle & I were both down with food poisoning or something. I lost 3 lbs in about 12 hours. We were so incredibly sick. Thankfully Kyle's mom, Sandra, came over to watch the kiddos so Kyle & I could rest. But I'm a bit stubborn and was determined to take Finley and to her last lesson and watch.
Y'all, I thought I was going to die. A couple of times I wished for it. When you are sick, sitting out in 100 degree weather is not the smartest thing. I sat there..I watched, I clapped, I took videos, and I tried not to pass out. On the last day parents were allowed to watch from the lower deck and get closer. Yea, I just stayed sitting down on the upper deck and tried not to barf. I'm sure her teacher thought I didn't care at all, because I don't really remember much.
Some of the videos are a bit shaky...remember I was trying not to pass out!
