Planting Our Garden

This year, to go along with our diet of healthier foods and green smoothies, we decided to plant our own garden. Shane got to work right away building the frame, leveling the bed and filling it with the appropriate soils. We decided to try tomatoes, broccoli, mixed peppers, spinach, lettuce, cilantro and basil. We bought some starter plants at Grove City's farmer's market and some seeds and started planting.

Since planting, everything has really grown. We've been able to use cilantro and basil so far.

Swimming Lessons

Seth and Parker took swimming lessons at Big Splash. We have a membership there this summer and it's a great pool! Seth has taken lessons in the past, but at the YMCA. Parker has never had any lessons previously. The boys took swimming lessons here for 2 weeks. Seth's was 4 days each week and Parker's was 2 days. Parker's class was also with Daddy (a parent and child class). The classes were both from 7:30 to 8:15 PM.

These 2 weeks were a lot of fun and both boys really improved! By the end of the 2 weeks, each had been promoted to the next level of swimming lessons! That means  Parker will swim solo in his next class!
