Father's Day with a SPLASH

Due to the craziness (I think that would be an appropriate word) of our life, we celebrated Father's Day, a day early since Phillip is leaving for Ocala tomorrow after lunch. (He will be gone for 12 days, so please remember all of us in your prayers.)
Phillip and Keith thought that we should spend a relaxing afternoon at the pool and order pizza for supper. Which was easy for J.P. and myself since pizza did not involve anything except for ordering and paying and also I think the guys did not feel like grilling out. With Phillip be out of town a lot during the week, the kids and I are usually at the pool without him, so today was his time to swim with the kids and watch Courtney do her "new thing".
We are so proud of Courtney's recent accomplishment. Since spending the afternoon with her friend Reagan on Tuesday, Courtney has overcome her fear and thinks nothing about going off of the high dive now. Thank you Reagan! In fact since Tuesday, Courtney has went off the high dive about 30 times.
WAY TO GO, COURTNEY!!!
She takes a bounce on the diving board.......

And she is off the diving board.......

in mid-air, nothing under her feet except for the water below..........

SPLASH!!!! In the water she goes, holding her nose, with her cheeks puffed with air.
Jonah, again our no fear kid, loves to do front flips off the diving board. We do feed him, I promise (look at his ribs).

A true workout.
Poor Keith did not get to rest with Jonah and Tyler around. Both of them talked Keith into throwing them up in the air numerous of times.


Well I hope that all fathers,
rather this is your first or like my dad this is his
44Th Father's Day, I wish all of you,
the best Father's day ever!!!!!

It looks like you all had a great day splashing in the pool. It looks like Phillip enjoyed his early Father's Day. I know it is hard on all you with him being gone. If you all need anything while he is gone please let me know and if you feel the need to scrapbook just call me. That always takes our minds off things. WAY TO GO COURTNEY!!!

Sounds like you all had a great time. I remember what it was like when I was growing up and my Dad traveled a lot. It is hard on everyone. I hate that you all are moving, but it will be good for your family to finally all be together again. Great job Courtney!!!! And Jonah........please be careful :-)

So glad that both of you had a time to relax and enjoy the day (even if it was a day early). I have been thinking of you this week. It seems like Courtney is trying to out do her brother!

Glad you got to spend this time together! I saw Courtney going off the high dive yesterday and wondered when she had learned it. Way to go Courtney!
