Katy/Houston, Texas

It has been a long but fun day. Isa and I started the day with a swim in the pool. Then Isa, Jimmy, and I went to Katy, TX for Emily’s 4th birthday party. It was a big hit with all the kids. It was a princess party with two crafts, a performance, and picture time with Ariel, Belle, and Cinderella.

After Emily’s party we went to a family party in Houston that wasn’t that far away. Sadly, I took no photos because we were pretty much in the pool the entire time. Isa was playing on this mesh floaty boat thingy and she got braver and braver on it. I kept waiting for her to fall off of it and sure enough she did towards the end of our time in the pool. She freaked out and cried loudly until I was able to ask her what happened. She then said the boat tipped and she fell in. Then I asked, “but you came back up? so you swam?” All of a sudden, she was smiling, realizing she swam for a second. She wanted to do it again! I didn’t let her do that again but she jumped into my arms for the next 20 minutes. It was awesome. Everyday she gets a little bit more confident in the water. I can’t wait to swim with her tomorrow!

Thank you to the Bateman, Wittig, Hansen, and Rudder Family for a great day!
