Wow, we are certainly having a hot summer, but I really can't complain after last summer.....I think it rained everyday! The girls are taking swimming lessons for the month of July. They both skipped a level or two from last year. They really love to swim. Hannah however "requested" to go back to the level with kids her own age. Dillon absolutely LOVES the water. He can now swim underwater on his own.
Most days after swimming lessons we head over to Meme & Papa's house to spend the day.....swimming. We usually have some friends meet us there as well.
Unfortunately we have no real camping plans made. Darr's work schedule is tough to work around, but we're still hoping to get a small trip in sometime. The kids are going to stay a night with Meme & Papa while they're camping.

Jaggar's new bed....

Jaggar loves to "help" make bracelets.

Meme made Jaggar a bed because he loves to get in Chloe's bag that Meme made her. Unfortunately he's a bit too BIG for it. Fortunately for Piper she's smaller and fits. I didn't get a picture of her in it, next time. So thank you Meme for the cat bed and I'm sure Piper will enjoy it. Jaggar really did try to "fit" in it.
