The high of my week was when swimming with Isla in the pool this week she showed off her improved skills! She has been apprehensive about keeping her face under water for longer periods of time and when using strokes. She improved by about 4 seconds earlier in the week and by yesterday she was under water for almost a full 20 seconds!!! I am so proud of her and the bravery she is using to improve her swimming. She is so not a risk taker!! Though she claims to be haha. We have spent a LOT of time in the water the last few weeks and we started summer with a week of swimming lessons so I'm thinking of adding on another week next month!
the child's new door sign!!! hahaha
The low of my week was the scratchy throat I woke up with. Allergies? Wtf? It's July. I thought I had escaped this year.
The book I am reading is The 17th Suspect by James Patterson and Maxine Paetro. It's part of the Women's Murder Club series. I've read some really good books recently including The Girl Who Takes an Eye for an Eye by David Lagercrantz part of the Millennium series started by Stieg Larrson, Ghost Boys by Jewell Parker Rhodes (AMAZING juvenile fiction about a young black boy who is shot in the back by a white police officer -- HIGHLY RECOMMEND), Commonwealth by Ann Patchett, An American Marriage by Tayari Jones, We're Going to Need More Wine by Gabrielle Union and The Abosolutely True Story of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie.
