~ A FIRST. . . AND A LAST ~

FIRST TIME IN THE POOL: Happy to sit on the side. . .

Daddy is funny . . .

Oh, the belly!


~ Bathing Beauty ~

Daddy finally convinced her to go in . . .

Lounging Lady
Mia was very hesitant at first when we sat her at the edge of the pool. She shook her head and made it known that this was as far as she was ready to go. She sat there and played and watched the boys enjoy the water. Then. . . she stood on the first step; and the rest is history! I just love sharing in these firsts with our girl ~ we missed many; however there are still so many more to come.
THE LAST OF THE SCHOOL YEAR:

Anthony had his last band recital last night. I was amazed at how well they all played, and how far they've come from their last recital in March. They were awesome! I was so very proud of my boy!

That's my Ant!
I also had played the trumpet during elementary school and up until high school. It was and still is a wonderful instrument. I was thrilled when Anthony chose to play it in the beginning of the year. I have such fond memories of playing with the band ~ everyone in harmony ~ the excitement ~ I saw it in his eyes last night and it brought me back. It means so much to this mommy that my boy will always have these wonderful memories and know that feeling :)

Love Mia's swimsuit-it is so adorable. Maybe Mia will surprise you and be a fish by summer's end.
