Kat still hates swimming.....and some projects!

Another summer and that means more swimming lessons. Trent has been brave and has done everything the instructor tells him. Kat, on the other hand, does not.

I have one of those kids that screams at the top of her lungs in a panic when her head has to go under water. The guests at the pool stop and look to see where the screaming is coming from.

Katrina pushes and tries to fight off the instructor. The guests at the pool continue looking around and find me, the one with the towel over her head in embarrassment and realize that I'm that screaming kid's mother.

When does this end? She's been in swimming lessons for 3 years (at least). She is obsessed with the 3 foot marker. If anyone tries to take her to the 4 foot marker, she panics. She thinks she can't float, swim, glide, etc at 4 feet. I can hear her screaming at the top of her lungs, "I can do it at 3 feet! Take me back to 3 feet!"

At Bitten by the Bug 2 this week, it was Reader's Choice. A reader asked us to do something from the Camp Out cart. I chose the curved fishie.

and OMGosh, I actually did a layout. It's been weeks. It felt kinda good. ;) This is new We R.
Thanks for your comments. :D
