After three rounds of swimming lessons Carson passed the Preschool Level 1 class this week! You wouldn't believe that just a year ago there were tears shed any time I got water in his eyes while washing his hair. He has come a long way! He completely surprised himself on the last 2 days of lessons by swimming 5 to 6 feet to his teacher and then back to the step. Once he discovered he could do it, he wanted to keep swimming over and over again. It is fun to see him discover things about himself. I could just see what a boost it was to his confidence. He can't wait to show Grandma next weekend that he can swim without floaties! Hopefully we can get him in Level 2 after our vacation to Idaho so we don't lose any ground. Hooray for Carson!

As a girl every summer we visited a small town in southern Utah: Pine Valley. This little town, tucked away in the mountains, is a little piece of heaven. My grandparents have owned a cabin down there for years and years and fairly recently my parents have purchased one too. The kids LOVE this place. The dirt roads, old (but now renovated) LDS chapel, animals, warm weather, cool nights, fishing, exploring...and just playing. It is such a treat to see my own kids love it as much as I do. Here are some pictures from our recent visit.
