New haircuts

While in Utah the girls decided they wanted to get their hair cut. Aunt Susan took some before and after shots of Lizzie. Unfortunately, I didn't get any of Tori, but I'll see if I have some general shots from vacation.

Lizzie got hers cut to her chin and stacked in back, so cute! Tori now has bangs and a slight layer in back that really makes her curls bounce!

Lizzie before.

The Shack

Rarely do I come across a book that I urgently want to share with family and friends. This past week on vacation I read three books. (yes, a VERY long drive!) The last book I read was The Shack, by William P. Young.

It is a fiction book that is written by a passionate theologian. Think you know your God? Think again. Think you know Jesus? Think again.

Religion, spirituality, responsibility, forgiveness, relationships? Think again.

Truly this book is a must read. This link will take you to parts of the book you can read online (forward, comments and the first chapter). The title bar of this post will take you to the web site.

I will be purchasing more copies of this book to give to others. I challenge you to do the same.

Swim Lessons

Okay, I'm little behind in my posting...but that's the story of my life.
The girls started swim lessons at Swim America (Break the Barriers pool) at the beginning of July. Tori was hesitant to put her face in the water, but by the end of the two weeks she was a pro!

Lizzie continues to work on her stroke each year and is doing great. This year they really focused on her back stroke.

At the end of the lessons we celebrated with a swim party! Fun, fun.
