Update on Ryanne's swim lessons

So Wed. we are getting homework wrapped up with Morgan and I announce that it is time for the girls to get their suites on; Ryanne says,"WHAT! I thought I was done. I dont want to swim anymore." I calmly tell her (key word being calmly) to go find her suite and pick out a beach towel. Much to my surprise she comes out dressed in her suite, towel under arm and says,"Mama, I'm not gonna cry today and I'm going to have fun." I stay behind to cook dinner (hide) and Dan takes the girls. I faithfully pray for her little spirit and of course the teacher who is stuck with her for the 4 months and wouldn't you know it, God blessed me AGAIN! Here come my little freezing wet fish through the back door all grins. Ryanne apparantly walked into the pool announced to everyone she was not going to cry, high fived head coach Jason and when her teacher called her to her lane she jumpes right in. At dinner we talked about how brave she was and I told her I had been praying for her while she was gone. I got rewared with a kiss and a thank you. Is it possible this is my three year old who in previous months has tourmented me to no end? Thank you God for even the smallest miracles in my day. Heaven! Pure Heaven!

Tell Ryanne how awesome we think that was. What a big girl! :) Isn't it funny how something that can seem so wearing/draining will turn out to be so great? God is good! I hope she continues with her excellent attitude at swim lessons for the coach's sake and yours. :)

You and Jess are by far my biggest blog buddies. Thank you for your encouraging words, they mean a lot :). And yes, many friends have told me that motherhood unwinds your tightly knit imperfections, I look forward to that day :).
