They both have done really well. Jolene jumped from the side this year.
She liked it so much she did it a couple of times!!
On the last day of lessons the parents get to come in and
watch and take pictures. I love this day, to be up close
and to let them know right after they do their thing that,
"yes I was watching and yes I'm proud!" Jolene's class got to go
off the diving board. Jolene loves to go off, but has her teacher
lower her down and then drop her in to the safe arms of the
going to do it herself? She smiled and said,
I am so very proud of how far she has come!!
We had a great time watching her, being outside
and hanging out with friends.

We love you tons!
Heather, Raychel and Jolene
And to Ward's wonderful father, Joel, who was taken early from us. He was a charmer, a teaser, a priesthood holder, a hard worker, a man who was proud of his family, he loved his wife and took great care of her. He was deeply loved and is greatly missed!

These special dogs bring their owners, a huge pillow
Charlie listen, but was so interested in all the kids that walked by.
Soon he laid down to listen better. It's nice to read to "someone"
who doesn't correct them, tell them to read louder, faster, slower,
but just listen!! Raychel of course wants to do it every week!!
He would look at the pages then fall asleep. It was great
Max and wishes our family dog Cami would lay still
This has been Jolene's dream since Raychel took
is the best!! When we got home she had
to run upstairs and try on the "costume" to make
sure it fit! She looks to cute! The kids get to be
in the 4th of July parade and the parade
for the county fair. She is so excited.
