I'm Hitting the Road Jack :)

Summer has begun!  Noah is out of school and I'm out of a job :) 

Yes I quit my job 2 weeks ago.  I was only supposed to work there for 6 months while I finished my last semester of college, and somehow I ended up staying 24 times longer (12 years!)  What is up with that.

So we are pretty busy.  Noah is playing baseball in 2 different leagues.  He is taking swim lessons.  He has basketball camp. 

And I am his chauffeur :)

Swim started this week.  Lessons are every day Mon-Thurs.  The pool offers Toddler Time at the same time, so I figured that would be a good way for the babies and I to hang out while we are waiting for Noah. 

Sure beats sweating to death while staring longingly at the water.

After spending a half hour in the toddler area at the pool with my two babes, I learned that my life is about to get a lot more complicated.

Lenay likes the water.  She was a little timid at first because the water was a little cool, but she walked right up to the water table and pretty much parked herself there for the rest of our time there.

Campbell has more discriminating tastes.  :)  She prefers that I hold her on my hip where she can live vicariously through her sister.  I could tell she was interested in the whole water table idea, but actually standing hip high in the water just wasn't something she was willing to sacrifice.

I did finally get Campbell to sit in the 0 depth area and splash a little bit in the cool water.  She seemed to not hate it :)  Just about that time, Lenay lost her balance and fell face first into the water.  She stood up immediately, but she took in some water and was obviously terrified.  She was frantically looking for me, and I couldn't get to her fast enough, even though I was only a few feet away.  Luckily Campbell was content to sit while I dashed over to scoop up her sister.


Just then Noah finished his lesson, and we piled into the family changing room. 

And just so you know, 1 adult and 3 wet, wiggly kids take approximately 30 minutes to simply get into dry clothes.
