Admittedly these are not the best pictures in the world. It hurt my apron strings a little to have them so far away from me. Thus the distance made for some not so great pictures. They approach things so differently...at dancing it was Avery that was hesitant and Mitchie who was boisterous and funny and ready to dance...while at swim Avery got right in and started swimming and it took coaxing from nearly the whole RPI swim team to even get Mitch in the water. I think they tried every trick they knew and finally his teacher just grabbed him and put him in the water with her. Trust me, it was the approach he needed.
Avery was amazing us with how much she was willing to do and was brave enough to do. This was the first time she had been in a big pool since she was very little...way before Mitch was born. She actually swam herself quite a few times...with the teacher right by her side, thank goodness. Look at her, i think she is smiling while she is swimming...she loved every minute. In fact, she did not want to get out and go home...she wanted to keep on swimming. She is a born fish like her dad!
Mitch had a death grip on his teacher the whole time and i am pretty sure he did not stop talking for even a minute. Poor girl must have had a headache. I am a proud momma...they were super swimmers, and they are not afraid to tell you so either!!!
My name is Leslie. I live in Virginia. I am a wife to Chris, a super husband/great daddy/army officer/PhD candidate. I am a mother to three very exciting kids, Avery and Mitchell, ages 13 and 10 and "baby" Delilah who is 5. I am a little crafty. I love fabric, quilting and I love my friends and family. I hope here I can keep up with all of you that are so very far away.
