Our first European swim day

What an amazing pool in our neighboring village of Nyon! Actually 3 big fun connected pools right by the lake... we had a blast.

Here's Kassie with her cute friends Alexa and Sariah... this was an Activity Day end of year swim party.

In 2 days, we'll experience our very first Independence Day without being in America. It certainly makes me appreciate the United States in a whole different way. Not just because we'll be missing out on the good old BBQ and fireworks, but because it's such a part of our blood - to celebrate, with our fellow Americans, the patriots who gave so much to write our Constitution and fight for freedom.  I think Daron and I will wake up the kids on Monday by singing 'I'm Proud to be an American" and serve them red twizzlers, white whip cream and blueberries in bed. Really, what more could they want?  8-)


  1. Waa waa waa. How sad I am that we did not get the opportunity to swim with you while we were there. Oh well, at least we had wonderfully cool weather!
    Love ya lots ... DAD & MOM

  2. I hope your 4th is wonderful! We'll miss you!
