Just keep swimming . . .

Still swamped at work, but thought I'd pause to update you all on the kids swim lessons which they started yesterday.  They are all there at the same time, but George is in the beginner class.  This is the first year that George has been old enough for lessons at TCU, so I was a little worried that he might do just as poorly as Luke and Evie did when they started out.  Luckily, we've had good results so far (two days in).  And I'm so grateful that our nanny Caroline has been helping reinforce the lessons.  Yesterday she got in the pool with them and went through some of the same techniques with him in our pool.  What a sweet lady! 

The older kids seemed pretty unaffected by the swim lessons and didn't even want to go the first day.  They must think they're too good for it or something, but they'll get over it.  I asked George this morning if he was excited about going to lessons again and he asked, "Are the same girls going to help me today?"  I said, "I think so!"  He cheered and jumped up and down - which I love to see.  So cute!

And here they are with Caroline.  They love her!  We've been blessed so many time with wonderful girls who have come into our lives and enriched the lives our our children.  Caroline is no exception.

Today Caroline took them to the park to feed the ducks and have a picnic lunch.  They have no idea how good they've got it!

Caroline and Evie almost look like they could be sisters. :)

What a blessing these fabulous women have been to you and your family!

She does look like a nice person. :D

And the kids are all so cute, but George always steals my heart!
