Swim Lessons: Day 5

I was kind of worried that a 3 day break would dimish Sariah's love for the swimming pool, but I was wrong! She's a super swimmer and today they gave her a floatie belt and a kick bar and she held on as I helped her kick her legs so she could swim like the big kids! She def. notices the kids in the shrimp classes as they swim by, and she was really excited to be just like them. It totally wore her out though, and she had her head on my shoulder before the class even ended!

She still not totally sure about he blowing bubbles thing, but she does it really well at the dinner table in her cup! Sigh, sometimes you got to pick your battles. ;)

We had a quiet Sunday yesterday. Doug and I were released from our callings (Ward Mission Leader and Ward Missionary, respectively.) We had been ward missionaries for 2 years now, so its nice to get a break and prepare for something new. We're still very excited to work with the missionaries, and plan to as much as possible. We haven't gotten new callings yet, but it shouldn't be long, there's lots of changes happening in the ward right now (move outs/in, ect.)

I watched the Euro Cup soccar Final yesterday and saw Spain trounce Germany. That was sad (unless you're Dav, that it was really cool... ;) ) Speaking of Germany, we had the two sister missionaries over Saturday for dinner and we made a nice dinner of bratwurst, rot kohl, knoedel, cucumber salad w/ dill, and an apfelkuchen (from a german baker investigator I had!). It was very tasty and we made them both homesick! Whoops!

I'm glad Sariah is loving swim lessons. She'll be a real pro soon. Congrats on your release as ward missionaries. It's always good to get something new to do after a while. Hope you both get new callings you will love.

It was an awesome game! We had so much fun watching it. Jonathan yelled at everyone in Spanish until he got shushed by Elena because it "hurt her ears." Too bad about Ballack--if he'd been 100% it would have been a closer game.
