Mr. M is working this weekend, so it's just me with the girls. We are getting it off to a great start. After school today we played in the backyard until sundown. I love seeing these three play together, even though the mess is triple when they do! ;-)

Yesterday Ginger had a breakthrough at swimming. She went underwater a bunch of times - her first time doing that. Huge, right?! Haha! But anyway - I was really proud of her. Mr. M got to go to her lesson and see her swim, since he was off work yesterday. Yay!
Paprika has her first swim meet this weekend. Somehow I am supposed to take all three kids to the swim meet by myself...and wait there for like three hours until Paprika's event! I am bracing myself for that experience. ;-)
There are only three kids signed up so far for Paprika's event (including Paprika), so no matter what, she'll at least come in third place! I told her third place was like winning a bronze medal. She was happy with that! I know that at some point kids have to know about winners and losers, but I really don't want to get her discouraged before she even gets started. She loves to swim, and well...let's just say that she lacks a competitive spirit. I love that about her, and just want her to enjoy it and not feel bad about coming in first or last place. I just hope she doesn't decide to sit on the bottom of the pool during the middle of the race! Ha!
