Swimming at the Neighborhood Pool

We have loved this past year and having a pool in our neighborhood.  The kids have enjoyed it so much and we are looking forward to the cool pool in our new neighborhood too...did I mention we move in 7 days and I am still not at home packing...Mason is getting really good swimming but still can't go far and Carissa still struggles to not sink:)  Hoping to get in another round of lessons in June if possible.  Carissa even ran into her preschool classmate, Ethan at the pool.  Mason had fun playing catch with some older boys in the water too!!!  So thankful for this weather in South Carolina...it hasn't got unbearably hot out yet!!!

A Tea Party with Friends for Gianna's Birthday

Such a fun morning fun of princesses, tea and our Birthday Friend, Gianna.  The girls enjoyed dressing up, having a tea party and Carissa's Favorite...the Pinata:)  Gianna was so thrilled to wear her crown and sip her Tea.  Her mommy had lots of yummy finger foods and glass tea cups for the girls to eat and drink in her beautiful backyard.  Gianna is such a special girl and Cari was so glad to help her celebrate turning 5 years old.

Music on the Green

I feel like I will do anything these days to avoid packing the house again....so even though our day has already been filled with Mason's 1st Grade award Ceremony (Congrats Bubba on getting Most Improved Writer Award), Ryder's Gymboree Class, Carissa's afternoon Ice cream Date while Mason played at Jaydon's House, come dinner time we still packed up all 4 kiddos, picked up some Pizza Slices from Lorenzo's Pizzeria and headed to Blakney with our Picnic Dinner to enjoy some Music/Play on the Green.  There were a million and one kids there and the kids had a nice time.  Late nights are not in the cards too often as Jack or Ryder expire but Ryder loved Dancing to the music and the water fountains and Mason played soccer with the big kids on the field. Carissa played on the playground and Mommy avoided another day of packing the house up....9 days and counting until Moving Day!!!!

Swim Lessons at Anne Close Greenway Recreation Center in Fort Mill SC

The kids have learned so much these past 2 weeks at swim lessons.  They teach them to breath under water, basic swim strokes and pool safety.  I am so glad we have finally done formal lessons...we have never had a pool to go to in the summer...we usually go to Carowinds to swim all summer long which is super fun but since they are required to wear life jackets they never really learned to swim on their own.  This has been great for them and I even wait listed them for more lessons in June. Our new neighborhood has an amazing pool with water features and slides.  I wanted to get the kids ready for a fun summer at the pool and this was a perfect first step...can't wait for more fun programs at the Greenway this year!!!
