Watch out, Nemo!

Earlier this month, I had the chance to take swimming lessons from Mrs. Linda - the swim coach at St. Joe High School. There was only one spot left, in the big kids' class, but I felt up to the challenge!
First, we learned to blow bubbles with our face in the water, and to "be nice to the water," - to kick softly, put our arms in front of us, and reach and pull!
There were times I got nervous (not a big fan of floating on my back!), but I'll get the hang of it soon.
Before I knew it, we were diving for toys at the bottom of the pool!
When each day was done, I was usually ready for a big snooze!
Helloooo, Flipper!

We miss Daddy!

We were very sad on Sunday, because we weren't able to be with our Daddy on Father's Day. We spent the weekend in the Texas Hill Country, and it really made us wish he were with us. We're waiting for Isla's important papers to be sent, so we can fly back to Brazil, and be together as a family. Hopefully, that'll be soon.

We took some pictures to send Daddy for Father's Day...

I tried to make Isla laugh...

...but, I think cousin Lindsey did a better job

Of course, I hammed it up once or twice to make Daddy smile...

...and we called him a lot, but talking on the phone just isn't the same... Miss you, Daddy.

Like Daddy, like Isla

Everyone seems to agree I'm a mini-me version of my Mommy. Isla, though, is definitely Daddy's Girl!
