Grace just finished her 3rd swim lesson last night. We take her down to the City of Dublin Rec. Center. There are 3-4 other kids in her class. Right now they are basically just learning how to blow bubbles with their mouths, go all the way under, kick, move their arms properly, and float on their backs (with the help of a water noodle). She is enjoying the class, but I have to say that Shawn and I could probably do just as good a job teaching her. We think that it is very important for her to learn how to swim early since we live next to a pond!

Hi everyone! This is Gauge. I just wanted to share some good news. I officially have my 1st tooth! Only 19 more to go until I can get some "real food."
Yesterday, we had a girl's day at Disney on Ice. My mom, Grace, and myself went to Columbus' Nationwide Arena to watch the princesses ice skate. I think that Grace's mouth was wide open in amazement the entire time! Before we left to go, she was just sure that she was going to get to go skating with them :) When Cinderella made her entrance onto the ice, Grace puffed out her chest, so Cinderella could see that she had a picture of her on her shirt. We had a wonderful time and great memories to last forever.
I decided that it was too much work to try and keep up with our other website and that maybe blogging was my answer. So.....welcome to The Shipman Family Blog. I hope to update this page as much as I can so you can keep up with us and the kids...and see how much they've grown.
