Swim Season Is Here!!

Swim time is upon us and we are spending much time in the pool. The May weather here in Southern California is odd in that last week we had a few 60 degree days and this weekend it is in the 90's. We are ready for the heat so this weekend was really nice- hot but nice. We didn't do anything this Memorial Day weekend since Kevin had to go to work Sunday night but we did get to spend time together as a family riding at the motorcycle track and swimming together.

The clan preparing to swim

Sadie loves to swim and will swim across the pool many times.

Owen looking tan already-- so unfair!!

Kevin tossing Owen across the pool.

Kevin tossing the boys off the raft. They love the raft and when the other boys from the neighborhood are over, they play king of the hill on the raft constantly!!

And off they go

Mia swimming in the spa

She is so ready to start swimming on her own. That will be our goal of summer-- learning to swim.

We were lucky that our pal Jordan stopped by. If you remember from years ago, Jordan was our neighbor who lost his whole family (father, mother and brother) in a car accident over 3 years ago. He and his older sister were the only family members left. His aunt became his guardian and unfortunately they moved closer to LA so we have not got to see him for a long time. We were so excited to see what an amazing young man he has turned into. He is handsome and just as sweet as can be. I was thrilled to see him and he seems to be doing well. We hope he will come back many times this summer!!

So that was our weekend. We are hoping our home study will begin this next week as I have already started our dossier paperwork so I would love the home study to get moving. We are still thinking over the names but we are really still leaning towards Finley. We will see. I think I will take the kids to Disneyland tomorrow since they are off school and Kevin has to sleep (he is working graveyards). Anyway, I hope all of you are enjoying the long weekend as we remember those who have served to preserve our freedom!
Happy Memorial Day!!!
