we are having a busy fun summer and we are enjoying every minute of it. Mia is talking up a storm and is starting to put the sounds of letters together to form basic words when she is reading her books. We are thrilled and are getting some books that our friend recommended to us to help her on her way. We have completed swimming lessons and have removed the child safety fence that surrounds our pool. Mia is able to swim the length of the pool and comes up for her breaths on long lengths. She loves to do her "flip overs" in the pool and loves to show her grandma and grandpa her somersaults. We of course are enjoying the fence down because our deck around the pool is bigger!
