*is a tender heart and gets sad easily
Janelle you are a joy and an amazing addition to our family!
I don't think I ever did post about Stetson n Kandace's lessons, but Janelle had hers a couple weeks ago and she made some huge strides. Being a "Middle child" and the 3rd, she sort of gets pushed to the back burner in some areas, swimming being one but she has improved her confidence level by leaps and bounds. She puts her head under and is enjoying the water more and more each time. She's generally a more timid girl, so I was super proud to see her get better.
Kandace and Stetson are both great swimmers, Kandace even jumps off the diving board now. Sure made me proud. Her favorite thing is racing me on the water slides.
Michael came home after 3 weeks and 2 days of his rotation in Libby, MT. We enjoyed our time together at the Rose Park pool and drove up to Red Lodge, MT the next day and hiked up to the lower basin Lake. It was beautiful!! 5 miles round trip but worth it. Some murmuring along the way but in the end a great hike. We knew Michael was coming home to visit but he'd said he'd be there late Thursday night, so when he surprised us in the middle of spaghetti dinner, it was heaven. I remember cleaning up dinner with just pure joy knowing he was home. I'll probably never forget standing in front of our condo on memorial day, watching his little KIA drive away, expecting not to see him again for 6 weeks.
