Swim Lessons: Day 3 (plus other exciting stuff!)

She did it! Sariah managed to blow bubbles twice today during swim lessons! Yay! She's doing so well and she's fearless in the water. We're having such a good time! One more lesson this week and then we get a break till next week, but we're having so much fun!

In other news, the a/c in my car is fixed, along with the breaks and an oil leak. My car is once again enjoyable to drive! This makes me feel much better, and I feel better about driving it longer, even though its only two door. I flipped Sariah rear facing in her car seat again (she was forward facing so she could get some air from the rolled down windows), and I feel much safer having her flipped back. She doesn't seem to mind. She can look out the back window just as well as the front, and she always jabbering away about something, or bopping her head to the music (BNL's Snacktime plays most often in our car, I highly recommend it!)

As promised here are some pictures from our recent projects:

First I trimmed a lot of dead wood and brances of this big tree/bush next to our house.

I wish I had thought to take a "before" picture, but since I didn't you can just imagine how wild and overgrown it looked before by taking a look a the branches I cut off. First there is this pile...

And this one....
And the piles we're saving in the garage for firewood when we go camping...

Speaking of the garage, Doug went out Saturday to mow the lawn, and when I went looking for him, he had started cleaning out the garage, so we picked up some organizational things at Walmart to he could finish. I think it turned out great! (You would agree with me if you saw the mess that it was before hand!)


Don't our trash cans fit nicely here? Its actually where we want to put a freezer eventually, but for now, this works well...
So Sariah's been getting into trouble... well, not really but she's really into climbing into the bookshelves.

In case you are wondering, this little outfit might be recognizable to some, it was once Doug's...
We also re-discovered our sunglasses the other day. She kept them on her face for a long time too! She's also much better with hats, as long as she put it on herself. I love that she's such a girl. She loves bows and glasses and hats and shoes and purses. Its all so cute!So there's an update on our life... till tomorrow's swim lesson post!

Nice pictures! It always feels great to get stuff done, doesn't it? And Sariah is cute in that outfit. I recognized it immediately, before I scrolled down far enough to see what you said about it. It was one of my favorite outfits for Doug to wear.
