Maggie Makes Four!

This journal started off documenting the adoption of our youngest daughter. It now follows the twist and turns of our lives as we raise these two amazing little creatures into the best women they can become.

Quote of the Day

The girls are in swim lessons now that school is out.  La Nina's class is basically just a conditioning class where the kids swim laps and work on their strokes.  The following conversation happened between La Nina and her teacher during a lap of the breast stroke.   Imagine the two of them shouting.  La Nina in the pool, her teacher on the edge next to her.

Teacher:  "Don't do the splits when you kick." 

La Nina: "But you said to open my legs"

Teacher:  "Well, yes, but don't do the splits."  

La Nina:  "But I can't help it. My legs just do that."  

Teacher:  "What?"  

Then the teacher's jaw just dropped.  Apparently, she'd never seen a child do the side ways splits with every kick of her feet.  The flexibility thing works for her in dance.  It's not so helpful in the water.
