I took Ella to her last swim lesson on Saturday morning, and surprise, she got to ride (or sit, mostly) in a boat! Yes, there was a boat in the pool at our local Y. I was quite surprised. All of the usually boisterous toddlers in her class were, all of a sudden, subdued when placed into the boat. We, parents, sang an overly excited rendition of "Row, Row, Row your Boat," to a boat full of very serious faces.
And Saturday evening we attended a birthday bash for one of Ella's best friends, Tate. We spent our time after swim class making a birthday card for him. I printed out a birthday message on the front of the card, and Ella had a great time decorating the card and signing her name inside.
