Summer Wrap-up

One of the best things about our townhome is the pool in our complex. It is only a street away and has a fenced in baby pool and a pristine full-size pool. We went most afternoons this summer. Nathan would splash in the kiddie pool while I snuggled Maizie. Finally I decided the kid really needed to get over his fear of the big pool. This required me to get in with him and pray that Maizie would stay occupied watching the clouds go by. She was a star.

Nathan put up quite a fight, and I am sure every mother in the neighborhood thinks I am heartless, but in the end he fell in love with the water. He is a bit of a control freak (I have no idea where he got that), but he is learning to relax and just have fun. 

By the end of the season, Miri was enjoying the water on her toes, too. Here she is confidently workin' the two-piece.

Just as the pool closed, gymnastics opened. He is the only boy in his class (most of the boys are in the class just before his, but that class is CRAZY!). But he is also the one that gets scolded for talking.

Fall is in full swing. We are keeping busy, loving our cuddle time and looking forward to more apple picking soon!
