Happy 6th Birthday Abbey :)!

6 years ago today, we welcomed our Abbey into our lives. Never could we have imagined that her little life would change all of ours. She brings our family unending joy and she has blessed our lives so much. We love you Abbey Rae :)!!

A few pics of her opening her presents from us this morning. Her party is this Saturday and we will be sure to take lots of pics and share them soon :)!

Swimming Lessons

Abbey and Micah are both taking swimming lessons in our developments pool. It is a two week session, every weekday morning. They are 1 week into it and they are both enjoying it very much! The progress that Abbey has made in this first week has been very exciting for her and I. She is getting much more confident swimming by herself! Micah too is doing well and getting more comfortable with having his face in the water and going under. Jacob opted to sit out this year. He is a good swimmer so we didn't push it with him. I'm really excited for the day when all 4 of them are good swimmers so I can relax poolside and catch a few rays :)! We have a ways to go till then, but someday we'll be there!
