Froggy Goes Surfing

Pro-surfer giving Froggy some advice.

They said that she should go out like a queen!

So she did!

The Mauli Ola Foundation is a non-profit foundation where professional surfers donate their time and expertise to teach kiddos with CF how to surf. Salt water and swimming are incredible respiratory treatments to help loosen mucus in the lungs. These pro-surfers fly in from Hawaii and all over the US, to teach kiddos like Froggy how to surf. It was very touching to see these "dudes" get so emotionally invested.

Froggy surfed her very first time trying. The water was chilly and she got some salt water up the nose, so she wasn't too thrilled at the end. But she did great, and we were so proud of her!!!

Funny, Fabulous, Froggyisms

Froggy shows me her stuffed animal shark and says:

Froggy: You can tell it's a shark by it's extra fin.

And then she looks at me like she's not sure I'll understand, but goes ahead anyway.

Froggy: It's called a dorsal fin.

We haven't been to Iowa in a while, evident by this next question:

Froggy: Does pork come from a porcupine?

And the other day on our walk to the car, this was our conversation:

Froggy: I wish I was a dingo so I could eat animals.
Froggymama: You eat animals.
Froggy: I eat ants.
Froggymama: No you don't.
Froggy: Yes, I do. Everyone does.
Froggymama: Your friend Beeman doesn't.
Froggy: Of course not! He's a vegetarian.

And some great Confucius Froggyisms:

Froggy: We're not the type of people who litter.


Froggy: I'll wear my bathing suit to the sun.


Froggy: I wonder what's really on the dark side of the moon?

On a hike the other day, Froggy takes two sticks and swings them in the air and said...

Froggy: I'm conducting nature.

When I told Froggy we would see her friend Mr. O the next day, she said:

Froggy: We can't see Mr. O. tomorrow because I will be busy making evil plans.

I'll leave you with that.
