what we've learned this summer

3 year olds + dancing = good times

Taryn has been in a little "princess" summer dance class and has absolutely LOVED every second of it! She is in the class with her very best friend, Ava, and they are so funny to watch together. I love watching her learn and grow and just be a cute silly little girl.

{and this video cracks me up... I guess that's what ya get when you have no bum!}

MY 3 year old + swimming = not so much good times

One of my friends from high school has been teaching swimming lessons, and this year I was so excited to get Taryn into one of her classes.

She did GREAT the first day... totally loved it and did everything.
Then it was chilly the next day, and all h.e.l.l. broke loose.

We had a two week course ahead of us and every day when we pulled up she would cry and say, "I don't want to go to swimming!!"

{doing the "monkey crawl" along the wall}

I guess she had a few moments of fun and learning, but it took a lot of convincing!
{like having her "doggy" watch her swim}

in the end, she really did learn a lot...

but for now we just take advantage of the kid friendly flotation devices

I love her Dance class. I also love her swimming most of all in my pool. She is so cute. Please have more swim days over here.

I laughed when I read this because my kid is the exact opposite. Taryn looks so cute in her little ballet outfit, meanwhile I'm buying dinosaur shirts and begging mini not to jump in the deep end! Love this, keep up the great {momma} work.
