Making Otter Progress

The kids continued to give it their all the rest of the week.  Friday came and I can't say we had wonderful new swimmers but we did have two girls learning a lot with the help of their older siblings.  

These two are nuts, but beautiful.

New Swim Season and New Swimmers

Twin Adorable with the pink goggles and Twin Beautiful with the purple goggles begin their swim careers today as they attempt to learn to to swim the strokes to compete on the Otters Team.
This is there new suit pose, not sure why it looks this way but they are ready to go.
I love this picture.  It shows how nervous they are and yet together they can do it.
Coach Sugar is right there helping.
Pooker and Goobers joined us at the pool to offer encouragement and support.

I am so proud of my kiddos.  We see various pictures of the youngest ones learning to swim and facing their fears.  We see the older kids coaching, jr coaching or cheering from the sidelines.  I hate the hot weather and sitting by the pool watching isn't fun.  I am often asked why I let them do swim team then?  Today is a perfect example of my reason.  They are all together, they can support and help each other.  This is just what our family does.  Now swim little otters, swim!

Easter Sunday - The Bunny Came!

 The bunny was here!

 The Breakfast was yummy and festive.
 The egg hunt was fun!

 The surprise Second hunt in the front yard was a true surprise.  We are not sure how that one even happened as we didn't even leave eggs for the bunny to hide in the front yard.

Easter baskets are important business.  We had lively debates this year about all kind of adult things. I love my family.  Our faith is so much a part of each of them.
 The T family came over as Twin Adorable's God parents.  They came bearing Easter gifts for the girls.

 The real fun began when they planted watermelons with the girls.  An ongoing project, teaching them so much about life.

 The girls are so proud of their plants to be.

After taking formal pictures the kiddos headed out to party while dad and I stuck around the house making a big Easter dinner.  

After a delicious dinner the twins made a visit to the W family to visit Twin Beautiful's God parents.  

This truly was a wonderful day.  Our family had a blast!  We loved being together and celebrating the highest feast in our faith with each other.
