Swim Lessons

Yes, I post about these every summer but this was a big one - Bryony's first year without a parent. And my first time being able to do lessons in the mornings instead of after a long work day :)


this face she does, I can't get over it

day one and DEFINITELY nervous

once the teacher held her hand she was OK

treated them to ice-cream afterwards most days

or sushi if we were all starving



Abigail off the high dive

Bryony off the low - they had to drop her in because she wouldn't jump

DONE! And Bryony is a competent swimmer now :)

My First Summer Home With my Children

got to go to a school field day for the first time; there's my girl in front

celebrating the birth of the Royal Princess Charlotte

reading in bed every night



splash pad fun





we had Liam come over twice a week for some play fun


did a *little* schoolwork/learning

splash pad again


library class - my other girl right in the front


Shirin's high school graduation (their babysitter they love)
bowling alley

took Bryony to various library classes while Abigail finished the school year
and we went to a weekly movie where I brought my own popcorn, one day they'll HATE that, ha
