A Great Start!

Summer time fun is here!

DSC_0012I have been dreading the pool time, if I can be quite honest.  I secretly wanted to skip swim suit season and all that it entails and hoped the kids just wouldn’t notice.  We live a stones-throw from our neighborhood pool and pass it each time we leave, so my plan wasn’t exactly realistic.  We started on June 1st with a trip to the pool.  I enlisted Mrs. Mary, of course!!!  She is a huge help, and I would not have gone without her.  It all turned out to be a lot of fun!  So much so that we got up on June 2nd and did the same thing.  Ruby said, “This is just like the same day as yesterday.”  Summer time fun.

Here’s what Ruby, Katherine and Ben did the entire time:

DSC_0013They swam and swam and swam.  I was hard-pressed to get a picture of Katherine’s face since she spent most of the time under water….in a good way…swimming her little heart out!

NOW, the other two didn’t do much swimming, but this is what you could find them doing for the most part:

DSC_0025While being an Olympic Swimmer is not on Molly’s short list of things to accomplish, she may pursue a career in modeling swimmies, catering to the older kids whose mothers have yet to invest in Swimming Lessons.  

Seriously, all Mack wanted was a Coke and a bag of chips.  Molly loved trying a little of this and a little of that from the cooler and lathering herself with sunscreen.  I can’t believe I didn’t get a picture of it, but the child sat in the shade with sunscreen and covered herself in it!  I guess it all goes back to the modeling…you can’t have wrinkled skin and be in magazines.  

We are off to Gran and PawPaw’s today to spend a few days with them.  The kids are excited for more swimming and more summer time fun!  We will be seeing Elmo LIVE! on Saturday, so that should be lots of fun, that is IF Molly isn’t horribly afraid of the big, hairy, monster that will be dancing all around the stage while we sit on the third row.  We’ll see……

OH, and since Ruby spent the night with Katherine, I let Molly sleep in Mack’s room.  We made a place for her on the floor.  They laughed and played for an hour or so, then finally Josh laid down the law (actually, he just laid down with them), they drifted off to sleep.  It was so cute.  These two play incredibly well together.  I love it.

DSC_0002Here’s to a great week and some more sleep overs in South GA!
