The Girls from the Arboretum rule!

July 19, 2009 by mike swope

We had a chance to work with the boy’s last we, so this week it was the girls turn. They were a lot like the boys, except no crying, no yelling, and no screaming..:)  Ok the boys didn’t do all that, but the girls had a bigger wind day and that made them paddle better too!  Or… at least longer…LOL!

P7150069 And despite the best efforts of both Mike and Mike, all the girls had a safe and happy time on the water…again!


Thanks Dallas Arboretum  for sharing all the kids with us again this year!!!
