Ella, Kate and Dash have a new cousin! Her name is shelby. Every day, and I mean every single day, Ella asks me for a dog and Kate asks me for a puppy. For now they have to live vicariously through Grandma Anne's pets.
I wish I could capture how beautiful the river is. I want to swim across and back this summer so I have been training at the local pool. I love swimming. I can't wait to become a great swimmer.
And my sweet little first grader. We have to leave for school at 7:30 but she gets up early and is ready to go. I am grateful to have such a friendly, adaptable kid. I have also been really happy with her school. It is only kindergarten and first grade. I like that they keep the little kids separate from the older ones.
