A Promise Is A Promise

Last year I promised Lauren that when she learned to swim I'd take her out to lunch and to Build-A-Bear. I was hoping that would be motivation to learn immediately but that was not the case. She did, however, learn to swim two weeks ago and she if off like a little fish! She is very proud of herself and I am very happy too. I am relieved to have five safe swimmers this summer!



















































At first, I tried to talk Lauren out of the yellow chick. I was thinking of a more bearish Build-A-Bear but then I remembered that this was not about me and my box. :) It's about what Lauren wants!! I encouraged her to take a few more minutes to look around and she settled back at the bright yellow chick.

I'm so glad she picked the chick.

Isn't she adorable?

And bright!











































I thought the swim gear was darling and Lauren agreed!

LOOK AT THE GOGGLES!










































Congratulations Lauren Paige!

I'm so proud of you.

Yay for Lauren!!! You are going to have such fun in the pool. Can you go under without holding your nose. Katie can't do that so well yet.

I love your chick.

What did you name her.

I love her outfit. It's perfect!!!
