We headed home where Madison napped and Emma rested at least before heading to the pool. I don't know where everybody was but we had the pool to ourselves, which was very nice. The weekend before last, Emma decided that she could swim all by herself and she did great with the use of her water wings and pool float. Last weekend, she took it a step further and was swimming with only the water wings. She did great kicking to propel herself all around the pool. The only problem is that we now have to watch her very carefully. I turned my back for one minute thinking she was standing on the step. When I turned back around, she was halfway across the pool. Emma and Madison got a kick out of watching Brad, Chris and myself go off the diving board a few times. I honestly cannot remember the last time I went off a diving board before last weekend.
Other than fun times in the water, there was lots of play in the sandbox and I'm not sure how many books Chris and Lesa were made to read to Emma. I think poor little Josh is going to have his hands full with these little girls. At one point on Sunday, they were both treating him like he was their little doll and putting hats, etc. on him. He is definitely out-numbered. Emma really enjoyed playing with Madison and the girls got along great. As we were putting Emma to bed on Sunday night, she was already talking about wanting to see Madison again. It was tons of fun with the Davis family and hopefully it won't be another 7 months before we get together again.

Yesterday we pulled into the garage and Emma says, "When I get bigger, I'll sit in Mommy or Daddy's seat up front and listen to 'Jesus Loves Me'. When Daddy gets smaller, he'll sit in my seat." This morning she also said that Josh would sit up front with her which I guess relegates Brad and I to the backseat. However, she did agree to drive Josh to wherever he needs to go and do the grocery shopping.
There is a house we pass by every day on our way to daycare that has a statue of the Virgin Mary in the yard. I am not sure that Emma has ever taken notice before and apparently the Virgin Mary looks like Jesus because as we passed by today, Emma shouts out "Jesus! Mommy, I saw Jesus!".
More updates to come soon!
