Blond hair, blue eyes
The sweetest grin that's one of a kind!
Spunk, strength, inner stillness too
A sense of humor that will undo you!
A will that is relentless
Spontaneous and incorrigible,
Rauly-girl makes life more enjoyable!
Praising God for the pretty birds flying in the air....
Rauy's been giving away kisses left and right lately...sooooo sweet!
She adores her Easter outfit and would wear it every Sunday if we let her (mainly because of the white hat that she thinks looks so cute - despite her athleticism...she is still a "girly-girl"! :)
And now for a quick change of subject - Chad totally surprised me with a anniversary get-away! He somehow managed to get my day-timer and looked on my calendar to see if we had anything on our anniversary weekend....amazingly, we didn't! SO, he scheduled a vacation for us in Daytona (he knew I'd never been and that I've been wanting to start seeing other parts of FL) - SO, we leave tomorrow! :) I can't wait - all I know about our weekend is that we're staying in Daytona at a resort that's on the beach.....Chad's apparently planned our whole trip! So sweet!!!!!
OH - and guess who's swimming without floaties?!?! Yup...BOTH of the kiddo's! Shep is in swim lessons this week and after the first 30 minutes session ended, he was swimming by himself....he woke up this morning and asked if we could go straight to swim lessons (this is a far cry from Monday when he was crying so hard that threw-up!....yeah...he's a wee bit dramatic!) Neways, Rauly being the overacheiving child that she is (lol!), decided on Monday that she needed to swim without floaties too, so....she just jumped in and started doggy-paddlin'...no tears, no fear....she just jumped in and DID IT - amazing! Both our kids are so unique - and we treasure they're differences!!!
Learning to float on his back....
Halfway across the pool....still floating....
Striking the "Superman pose"....
Yeah - made it to the steps!!!
Shep swimming to the bottom of the pool to retrieve a ring....
He got it - whoo-hooo!!!!
