Swim Class

Brody has graduated to independent swim and he's loving it. Jason's also thrilled that he only has to be in the water for 30 minutes with Cam and not an hour. Last session was great, both Brody and Cam had awesome teachers, this session we aren't thrilled about the teachers. Hopefully they will both learn enough and Brody specifically can move up to the next class!

Brody's Skating Adventure

In January Brody started skating lessons, we thought it would be a fun winter activity for him. Of course living in the land of 10,000 lakes you must learn to ice skate. We got all the gear and set out for a fun Saturday morning activity...week 1 our neighbor/friend Erik joined us, given neither Jason or I skate so we thought it would be good to have an expert there to help. Much to excitement...Brody was NOT interested. So after 3 painful weeks of skating we stopped, it wasn't worth the time or energy. We'll try again in a year or two when Brody is a bit older!

Cam 1.5 years old

Mr Cam is getting to be such a big boy. Often times we call him the Ogre as he can be a real brut! He LOVES reading books, playing outside, snagging Brody's toys and his Daddy. He can be the sweetest little guy one minute, take away his toy or bring him inside and he can throw the biggest tantrum you've ever seen! He's brings tons of laughter into our house! We love you Cam!
