The Pool

After church yesterday… it was HOT and little Paiger Rager was ready for her nap!!

There are some really nice things about living in this rental house… it has afforded us some opportunities! One being “the pool”. No, not the lovely purple one that we have in our backyard but the one down the street! We decided to bite the bullet and join the Azaela Tennis & Swim Club and we’ve been twice and we LOVE it! I’m convinced Morgan will learn how to swim this summer. We’ve been twice and she’s already shown improvements. Yesterday she fell in and went under. She held her breath and kicked her legs. I jumped in after her and pulled her up. She was definitely scared but her story quickly changed from almost drowning to “Daddy, did you see me swim under water? I kicked my feet and held my breath!” It’s a great community pool and a lot of families from our church are there. I look forward to meeting other moms there and having somewhere cool (literally) to take the girls.

We’re getting all geared up for our big trip this week. We’re meeting my parents, Justin’s parents, and Erika & Chance at the Stickler’s house in Cashiers, NC. I’m so excited. It’s one of my most favorite places and I’m excited to have the families together. I probably won’t blog until we return… hopefully I’ll have lots of fun pictures & a good report!

    Darby – I got the link to your blog from Erika. I hope and pray all is well with you. You have a beautiful family. I just got married myself five months ago – Erin is a true blessing. By the way, you live close to where my entire family is. My brother and I were born in Anniston. My grandparents still live near Troy. And I drive through Dothan all the time on my way to visit family and down to FL where we vacation. Take care and God bless!
