Crazy Week

Wow! It's been a very crazy week! It started last Friday with the street fair. There was lots for the kids to do and free food, which I enjoyed! There was also the Battle of the Barrel, which, again, we lost. At least the kids had fun getting wet! Saturday was the 4th of July, which means the parade, cooking out, and fireworks. Seeing these things this year reminded me that Little Dude is getting older. He had so many questions about all of the events and that leads me to believe he was too young to remember last year.

The weather has been great, which means that we can enjoy the pool. The kids are fearless - they climb and jump off of everything, love amusement park rides, but are afraid of the water! We had GG take swim lessons a few months ago. It was the hardest thing for me to watch. The first lesson that I was allowed to watch, she clung to the instructor for dear life! By the end of the 2 week course, she jumped off of the diving board! Of course, the instructors were catching the younger kids, but I was so proud of her. Yes, I cried (after the near panic attack as she walked towards the board). Now Mike....he has no fear of the pool as long as it's the baby pool. The big pool...forget it, he won't go in! I think it might be time to look into lessons for him. Anyway, getting back to taking the kids to the pool. Last week me, GG, and my brother worked on getting Little Dude in the big pool. We finally got him to go down to the 4th step, but he wouldn't go completely in. Well, on Monday, GG finally convinced him to go in. And he did!!! We were all so proud of him! Now we can't keep him out of the pool.

The rest of this week was spent running around. Tuesday, Chris and I went to a concert with friends of ours. The show was great - possibly one of the best I've been to. And it was great to see a friend we haven't seen since high school. As great as it was, come Wednesday, I have never been so tired in my life! Thursday night the kids had a Pirate party at our library. They both wore their skull shoes and Little Dude brought his pirate hook. There was a treasure hunt, face painting, and they made pirate ships. Unfortunately I do not have pictures, but I promise it was loads of fun.

Tonight, Chris and I have yet another concert. We are both very excited to have a night to ourselves, but I hope tomorrow we aren't as tired as we were Wednesday. The last thing I need is to be that tired and be in a room full of kids. Yes, my kids have another library party tomorrow. This time it's a
Webkinz party, which GG has a ton of! Now that they have come out with Webkinz Jr., Little Dude has one to and he so happy to be able to join the party and show off Brownie Biscuit, his monkey. Don't ask about the name because we have no idea where he got it from!

Well, the kids are calling me to help them set up a game, so I guess I should wrap this up. Bye for now!
