John and I decided that our family would benefit from a membership to the YMCA. The kids were giddy and were beyond anxious to go swimming. We didn't want them coming out in the cold with wet heads so I meandered over to Scheel's with Rose and let her pick out a swim cap for everybody. I had no idea the amount of laughter swim caps could bring into one home. In the first picture, the girls are laughing at John and I laughing. It might have been up there on our top 5 laughs of my life. You really can't tell from the picture, but the caps pulled Lillie and Rose's eyes UP and pushed Zellie's eyes DOWN. So, if you've had a bad day and need a good, hard gut hurting laugh, go buy swim caps for your kids and you really don't even need to go swimming. Or maybe we are just odd folks.
Lillie looked rather "alien"like so John said "Take me to your leader." She tells people that now. I overheard her telling my sister about their caps and she said, "Papa calls my cap "Take me to your leader."
