Hanging out

We’ve been laying low for several weeks now. I don’t think I’ve ever done less before!

On Saturday, we wanted to do something fun with the kids, especially since Michael doesn’t get to spend much time with them during the week now. We chose 12 different activities and then drew one out randomly …it was the one that Michael and I wanted to do least…swimming! Who wants to go to all the trouble of getting 6 little kids ready for the pool when it’s freezing and snowing outside? Anyway, that’s what we chose and that’s what we did. The kids LOVED it. Check out Emma’s happy face especially. I think they were thrilled because they really haven’t had a chance to swim for so long. Sounds crazy coming from an island, but you can’t swim in the ocean there. You just play around in the waves, but it’s too shallow to swim, and the deep parts off the coral are hazardous. So….after two years, our kids were able to have swimming lessons again. Mary couldn’t imagine going in the water without her snorkel and was sure she would be able to see some fish! They had a great time, and I was really good at sitting on the side taking photos!

I’ve also included some photos from when I took the little girls to the library for a cowboy Valentine’s party, and Emma’s awesome static hair. Enjoy.



  1. My boys would love to go swimming in the winter….but I’ve never wanted to bother!!

  2. I wish we had an indoor swimming place. The girls would love it! Especially Robyn … Annalise is becoming too much of a teenager. lol
