Aren't these little critters adorable? I colored them all with my Copics and atyou Spica pens.

Oh! We started our swim lessons today! It was supposed to start yesterday but someone got sick in the pool and they had to shut the pool down before our lessons started. I was a wreck driving over to the pool... hands shaking and my stomach twisted into a knot. BUT I got through it and Anna (my instructor) said I didn't look nervous at all! It really helped that Melanie had me going under the water on Sunday to help me get ready for the lessons (love that girl!!). Anna got me to float and kick and do some freestyle. Eeek! I'm swimming... actually learning to swim! Never in my wildest dream did I think I would be able to do this without freaking out. Well... freaking out on the inside but managed to keep it contained for the most part. Can you imagine an adult losing it in front of all those young children?
