We always love our time in Franklin, but June 15th was a sad day. Little Belle had been the Payne's family pet for 17 1/2 years. Her health had been declining for some years now, and this day, she passed away. She was the Payne's little jingle belle and meant so much to the family. Especially to Nonie and Pops.
Justin and Pops made a special place for her to be buried.
It was truly a sad, sad day.
We will always remember the funny stories of sweet Belle!
Well, on the last day of swim lessons, June 21st, the parents got in the pool with the kids and helped them perform everything they had learned!
I was so proud of this kid!
Lydia demonstrates with Cassie.
James was like a different kid at this point!
While we were in the pool, everyone else got to watch from the side.
This is the stunt I couldn't believe…. James diving down to the bottom of the shallow end to retrieve a dive ring!
Here are some videos of the final day!
One is of James diving to the bottom of the pool to get the ring.
The other is jumping off the diving board and swimming to the side.
