OK, enough of the melancholy! Here's some footage of sweet Camren enjoying the waves.
This trip has really been a coming of age for Conner. He insists on dressing himself (with the door closed and locked) and the biggest things have been swimming in the deep end of the pool and snorkeling in the ocean. I can't believe my four year old was snorkeling in the ocean! It took him a few days to assess the situation and get comfortable (this behavior is likened to mine) but once he was ready he was full speed ahead. He went out as far as he could touch and would snorkel with the waves crashing over him looking for all the sea treasures. The trip started off slow with Conner having a 103 degree fever our first day here and a nagging cough and congestion ever since (thanks pre-school...) but overall I think both boys have had a great time.
They say that kids don't remember things before 4 or 5 and I certainly agree that's true as an adult I don't remember much of my childhood in general and especially the early years but the great thing is that they remember now. Conner has been remembering things when he was 3 that he did when he was 2 and so on. This has been really amazing because we never thought of them remembering things when they are little. I know my hubby sometimes thinks I'm crazy for taking them to do some things that they'll "never remember" but hey they'll remember it for a little while. And I know that they'll remember that we love them so.
