have been filled with lots of fun and adventures!
The girls did a week of swim lessons. It started out pretty rough, and got a little better as the week went on! The first day Bekah screamed and cried the first 40 minutes of the 1 hour class. She did NOT want to put her face in the water, at all, no matter what, not even for ice cream or treats. And for get jumping in the pool! It was not a fun hour! I wanted to spank her, slap her, then I just wanted to cry with her! But she got a little better over the week and by day 6 she would do it, without much crying. Grace did great. She started out not wanting to swim with her face in the water or jump in, but by day 6 she could swim the length of the pool and even jumped in off the diving board!
Grace jumping in off the diving board!
I only got to go to the first and last day of swim lessons due to being at Girls Camp all week!
Which was a blast! We had 11 girls there and we got to bunk as Wards this year. (Our Stake does camp all together.) So it was nice to see all the girls together and getting along. We also had 3 YCL's this year, youth camp leaders, and it was cool seeing them teaching devotionals and leading all the girls in different activities. They did great. It was in the 90's all week and while we did stay in air conditioned cabins and had other air conditioned buildings, we where still outside a lot and walking all over, and it was hot and uncomfortable. My feet started to swell after day one and for to where I couldn't bend my toes it hurt to much! So I spent a little free time each day laying with my feet up! Our Stake camp theme was "A heart like His." and then each Ward had a personal theme, ours was "A Strong Heart". It was a great theme and we spent a lot of time in devotionals and doing activites to help us gain a 'heart like His'. It was a great year!
This is our Ward! I am in the back row, second from the right end.
This is me with some pink in my hair, I actually had a ton, everywhere, but this is all that could be seen in a picture. It was Pink Out day, head to toe! I mainly took this for Grace, but since I was behind the camera, this is the only picture I have of just me!
I also have a few 'belly' shots, but I can't seem to find them, so I will post them once I do! But be assured, I have a belly, way bigger than I should at 17 weeks! Guess that is what happens when you have no waist area and are having your 4th baby! So... I will post them soon!
