our favorite things | swimming lessons

One of the things we look forward to each week is swimming lessons and luckily for us, Sadee gets to take lessons from her own Nana and Aunt Mindee.  She loves it - and by love I mean that she practices her swimming skills inside and outside of the pool.  My favorite thing is her diving pose, lovely right?  At under 2 years old, Sadee has become an outstanding swimmer and can basically do everything on her own - but thankfully someone is always right there to make sure.  Her favorite thing is jumping off the wall and diving board.  Heaven help me and my little dare devil child!  I'm thankful she is learning skills to keep her safe, especially with her fearless personality.

And PS, I feel sort of lame that I don't have any spectacular thoughts or crafty writing, but these pictures sort of speak for themselves, don't you think?

happy easter!

This Easter was perfect and simple.  I couldn't have asked for it to be any better.  We colored eggs, enjoyed the sunshine, ate tons of candy, and enjoyed a wonderful Easter feast.  We even went to church together as a family, which was really needed.  To be honest, this Sunday did not provide me with much time to think about Christ and his infinite sacrifice, but I'm hoping to do a little studying up this week to make up for it.  Many of the thoughts I've read the last couple days were truly inspiring and I'm grateful for that - so thank you!

Happy Easter, again!

Cameron : This past week offered some unforeseen challenges, but he's still perfect and sweet.
Sadee : Took a swing at her first piƱata, showing off her forehand skills {proud daddy moment}.

Every time the camera comes out to capture the life of our little almost 2 year old, {notice how I can't leave out the "almost" bit} she runs in the opposite direction.  Let's face it, she's always on the run - leaving me in her dust.  We just have a lot of pictures of the back of head, which is still pretty cute with a head full of curls.  

Happy Friday.
And Happy Easter!
