I realize that my kids have two very different sets of genes, they've had the same amount of sun exposure, the same amount of sunscreen, and Hallie is tan and Dallas is still white, he unfortunately gets that from me!

Today was the kids last day of swim lessons for the summer. We can start early here because it starts to get hot early here. The kids have been taking lessons for about two months now and since it's pushing 115 degrees here, I'm done! I think they are done too, it gets to be a bit much as the lessons are everyday, but they had fun and really improved their swimming skills this summer. Here's some pictures from the season, and why are there no action shots of Hallie? Well she kind of wimped out on the whole diving board thing. I can't say I blame her. I have vivid recollections of being a kid at the town pool in my Mom's small Southern Alberta town, and climbing all the way up the high dive only to turn around and make everyone behind me get down so that I could climb off. I guess wimpiness runs in the family. That or extra cautiousness, call it what you like.
