One fish, Two fish,

We signed Kinson up for swim lessons at the Y this last week and this week. I like to sign him up for things just so maybe, just maybe he will start understanding that he has listen to what people say and behave around others not necessarily the skill! Surprisingly, he has done really well with swimming.

This is what it looks like every afternoon when Papa comes home! Cohen was sad that she had to stay home with me. She is becoming quite the handful and when it comes to water--she has ZERO fear!

Day#3-- he got more excited every day!

This is in the zero entry side--he loved swimming on that side before and after each lesson. He thought he was a bigshot with no floating device or parent!

By the 4th lesson, he let the teachers actually let go of him and go at it all alone!

Looks like we are going to have to move.....

if they continue to want one of these! Mackenzie's bday part was a petting zoo and they brought a pony to ride. My kids loved it! Uncle Robert keeps encouraging us to get a pony for all the kids.......not gonna happen anytime soon!

Tuesday, July 20, 2010 this on her diet?!

That would be "NO!!" But this little girl can eat. I have said before that she is on a restricted diet, well the last few weeks since we began the growth hormones, she has eaten NONSTOP!! My cousins from Virginia came in town last week and they always have a few must have places that we must eat at when they are here. Their favorites are: Jerry's Catfish, Krystals, and Sonny's Bar-B-Que! The funny thing is that we only eat at these places when they come in town! We are trying to slow her down by giving her a piece of toast to gnaw on!

I know I need to give a big update on her but I need to get some cute pics to go with it, but I will say that she has gotten her hearing aids and we couldnt have asked for things to go more smoothly! More on that soon...........

Reston Zoo

While up in Virginia we visited a small petting zoo/wildlife refuge. It had lots of goats, pigs, ducks, etc fot the kids to pets and feed. Kinson and Cohen loved it! We got to ride through a field where all the animals came up and let us pet them. This goat made us laugh so might not be able to tell that his eyes are going in all kind of crazy directions.

New beginnings....

I know my posts lately have been a little blah and down lately but it really has been a rough few weeks at the Smith household. But one thing is looking up.....Bear got a new job!! Bear started Tuesday and he has been so excited to get up and go to work every morning. Where oh where we is he working??..........

He is working in the accounting department as an Accountant Supervisor. I am thrilled to see him in a job that he gets to use his skills and knowledge. Best part for me---NO TAX SEASON!!!!
