"Hoppy Swimming"




John and I decided to get John Luke's frog pool out and see how he liked it. I was hesitant to let him swim since he has had a runny nose and cough for the past week but I gave in. It was plenty warm enough outside! I think the cold water just about took his breath away at first but he quickly got used to it and seemed to love it until... he saw a TRACTOR! (He calls everything a tractor. It was actually the backhoe). John had been using it for something this week and it was still parked in our yard so when John Luke turned around and spotted it, the swimming was over. He LOVES to ride on anything if its outside! So we all piled on the "tractor" and went for a ride. It is definitely not meant to have more than one person riding. I was hanging off the side, literally, and then John let me hold John Luke in the seat which was much more comfortable! But he had a great time and we had fun watching him steer and pull the bucket up and down. Isn't it strange how now everything your children do is funny and entertaining whereas before kids we would have thought it was boring?!! Boy, how life changes!!!

I just wanted to tell you how wonderful it was to get to spend time with you last week. John Luke is an angel and it makes me sad that I don't get to see him more often. Keep us in your prayers and know that I love you very much!!

Hey!! I love the picture of his face in the water. Reminds me of John Parker with his fearless mind and body!! I passed my sugar test finally and everything looks great!! I'm just counting down the weeks, days, hours, and seconds!!!:) I'm thinking that John Luke needs a baby brother or sister soon! How about you?
