Aye Aye Captain!

The girls participated in the annual Cardboard Boat Races help at the city pool.  It is not as easy as you would think...not only is your vessel made of cardboard but they must hold a noodle between their legs as they kick their way down the lane, while pushing their boat with a kick board!  It makes me tired just writing about it!!  

Before the races started Melody won one of the raffle prizes...5 free blizzards from Dairy Queen!! 

 Priscilla was determined!  

 Melody just kind of floated along!! 

 Priscilla's determination earned her 2nd place!  

 Captain Hook is a little worn out!! most of you know she isn't very fond of the water.  She tolerates swimming lessons because the rule in our house is you have to know how to swim.  Erik and I were a little worried that her race was going to be a total wreck but we were wrong!  Serenity kept telling us she was going to do it and by golly she did!  She came in DEAD last by about 5 minutes but she kicked the entire length of the pool, for the very first time, with her swim teachers, and the crowd, cheering her on!!
