Even though we still had one week of school to go this past weekend was absolutely the best intro to our summer we could have wished for. We got to spend Saturday and Monday with our best pals and we got to stay wet for a better part of the weekend. Always a good thing for me and my water babies.
This one here is my twin when it comes to swimming. We both could stay in a pool 8 hours a day, no problem.
This one here is almost as hardcore. I remember taking him swimming when he was only a few weeks old and watching him float with only one of Sweet Mans finger holding him up. Where did that baby go? Almost 12 years old this one. Cheez and wiz. 7th grade next year. That is almost grown. I. Am. Not. Ready.
He had the same literacy teacher in 4th and 6th grade and she is moving schools after this year. Today I hugged her neck and balled like a baby. She took such good care of Wy when he was the new kid at school and has always been so supportive of him and his interest. We will miss her so much, but I think perhaps I was crying a bit for myself as well. My baby will be a man all too soon.
This weekend we swam in big pools and little pools and pretty much both were wonderful. In fact I think I am going to get one of those huge blow-up pools so that I can float around on a raft and read. It may not be high-class but honey child I will love it so much. Any pool is better than no pool.
Don't Sweet Man and I make cute kids?
And they are interesting and smart. Course I am prejudice I know. But I enjoy my boys so much. The older they get the more fun we have.
This weekend we also had 3 showings on the house but no offers. I have to confess I am losing heart a bit. I know I shouldn't, but I am. Anyone have any peppy words of encouragement for me? The house has been sale for almost 6 months and while I know that is a drop in the bucket these days it feels like forever. I am trying to let it go and move into the summer with no expectations. My goal is to enjoy our break fully. To not worry myself or work myself to exhaustion with extra projects. To not fret about those things I cannot control. I just want to be with my boys, not over-think things, read and relax. But oy vey, those showings always throw me for a bit of a loop.
Maizy got all wet this weekend too. Course she wasn't quite as excited about it as we were, but oh la she is so pretty and fluffy now. Sweet girl. I love this dog something crazy. It is truly ridiculous.
