Wow, my posts have been grumpy lately. Here's some of the good:
Last night we had a wonderful date night: happy hour at PFChang's, shoe shopping for Brian's trip, dessert at Trader Joe's, and a Karen Choi concert at The Wolf Pub with lots of friends around.
Today Patrick has a birthday party and wants to have a friend over. I'm going to help Lillian and Catherine clean their room, Sarah Frances is getting her long-awaited haircut with her dad, and I am meeting a friend for coffee at 2.
At the swim meet this past Tuesday, Catherine's free relay set a team record! And Sarah Frances is the fastest 9yo in most of her races. She's begging to start swimming year round. Patrick is still mostly interested in what the other swimmers are doing while he's racing.
Lillian is learning how to get along pretty well in the pool. She's not the strongest swimmer, but she can propel herself from point A to point B as long as it's not more than 2 breath's distance.
Brian painted a fence this week; I called him Tom Sawyer. He's also been more available to play with us since he's not in class. We all went to see Brave yesterday for a huge treat, and to stay out of the 108 heat.
I've been taking lots of naps lately. The kids are doing summer reading for prizes, and when they go up for silent reading time, I go down for a nap. It's been a very, very nice break from the busyness of school days.
So, yay for the good! I'll try to share more of that.
