Putting Your Best Face First!

Last night we went swimming at the YMCA as a family. The kids had a blast. We have only had our membership for about a week and we have already been swimming 4 times.

Little Miss loves jumping in the pool to Mommy and Daddy. "Again, again!" is her favorite phrase. The older kidlets like jumping in the pool almost as much as their little sister. Cowboy has finally gotten over his fear of jumping in the water, so he's joining in the fun too. So we were having lots of splashing and jumping.

Princess learned a very important lesson about jumping in the pool last night. Do not jump into the pool backwards, or this might happen.

Can't spot her injury? Well, I'm sure you can see it now. Ouch! The ER doctor put in 7 stiches.

She was a super trooper. She did better than some of her brothers when they had to get stiches. When I asked her how she keep from crying she said, "I just thought about my ballet recital." That's our girl!

Undercover Angel

I love looking at crafts on the Internet. My favorites bar is loaded with ideas for projects I'd love to try. Lucky for me my niece, Maple, gave me an excuse to try one.

Isn't this a cute carseat cover? I love the velcro straps to keep the cover in place. Grandma VO might recognize the fabric from her stash. At least I'm pretty sure that's where it came from.

I had a friend suggest that using a mesh knit fabric would make things more breathable for Summer time and warm climates.

Maple seams to approve! She and Mommy got to go shopping together today while brother and sister were at Vacation Bible School. Ahhhh, the joys of shopping with only one child again, eh, Little Red Hen? (Now we know why they call it "vacation" Bible school. Hee hee!)
