swim lessons..

Well, if you don't know jack very well, then you don't know that sometimes he get a little nervous to do things. And that's totally ok with us. As long as he tries it. When we started swim lessons that first day he screamed so loud you would have thought the lady was beating him. But Miss Megan would NEVER do that!!! So the next day he didn't cry any more, and he what finished with the whole crying thing until the very end. Right after his teacher "dropped" him in the water. She didn't actually drop him, she just let him try to swim on his own. Ever since that moment he was kinda sorta a little bit scared of the water again. But he still tried, and went everyday, and participated! That's all that matters!!

Jack, we're so proud of you! We can't wait until next year to see how far you've come!!! And thanks for always trying!!!

Mr. Comic Relief

Well, we can always count on Matthew for a little comic relief. I've been wanting to take some pictures of fruit and veggies to hang up in the kitchen. I guess this is my start!

And the Dave elmers have been known to like their wrestling... but did you know we like KUNG FU?

And last but not least, Dave spotted this flower while driving home from church yesterday and made me jump out and take a picture of it. It's pretty amazing how one lone flower managed to pot out of the wall. Maybe we can all be like the little persistent flower and never give up, and remember that it's ok to live a little outside of the box!
