Our summer trip is finally here. Tomorrow we leave for Avalon, NJ. We rented a house with the Mecchi's. We are all so excited. Today was a crazy day, full of last minute preparations for the trip. Kyla and I also went to see the movie Ramona and Beezus. I was so surprised that she wanted to see a movie. She's been really avoiding movies at the theater. She'd rather just watch them on DVD, and even then, she really doesn't like watching something she hasn't already seen. She's made alot of big strides this summer. One huge one has been with swimming. She is finally comfortable under water, is swimming, went on the water slide, and even jumped of the low diving board at one of her swim lessons. She also decided she wanted to go back to dance classes. This was also a big surprise. I'm so glad that she's getting a little more courageous and allowing herself to have fun. We'll be back in a week.
