Last Swim Lesson

Tuesday was the boys' last swim lesson for the summer.  I asked Finn if he was excited about his last lesson and he said, "Yes, this means that I am now a man."  They did pretty good.  We push them a lot harder at home, but they both finished pretty strong.

They spent two nights this week with Gran due to a combination of Michael being out of town and my work schedule.  They went to the park and to the Cumberland Science Museum.

These last few weeks Finn has been working on his transitional phrases.  He will hear Michael or I say a word or talk about something and say, "speaking of so-n-so." It sounds so funny hearing him talk like a little adult. 

Yesterday, Nana came up to go to BF Myers.  She made a quick stop to the house and then we had lunch at Blue Coast.  Then we went to BF Myers.  We found the massage chairs pretty quickly and sat in them for at least 10 minutes.  Sam couldn't quite figure out why were sitting in chairs that moved on its own.

Finn and Sam give Will absolutely NO personal space whatsoever.  They are always in face yelling and grabbing on him.  For a few minutes he will tolerate it.

Then he gets mad and starts swinging those arms.  I have warned both boys that they deserve whatever Will dishes out. 

Last Thursday was Finn's field day.  He wasn't too excited about it because he didn't get to participate at all.  He was even more upset by the fact that he only came home with a "participants" ribbon.  I guess Finn expected to get a ribbon for "Best Score Keeper."

Mexico Beach

Today I embarked on my first ever “girls’ trip.”  I have always had friends that went with their other girl friends on beach vacations, but I have never been on one myself. 
The trip started at 6:30 a.m.  I kissed the boys goodbye (Finn woke up to make sure that he got a hug) and hopped in my newly cleaned van to head to Robyn’s house. I had originally intended to meet Samantha and Karen in Hendersonville, but I spent a little too much time with the boys and got behind.  Instead, we met at Robyn’s house a little after 7:00.
Once we all arrived, we packed up the van and set out for 109.  The van has really come in handy.  We were able to get all of our suitcases, bag, pillow, etc. packed neatly into the van with room to spare.

We officially hit the road at 7:30 – the destination – Mexico Beach Florida.  Samantha’s mom has a condo that she graciously let us rent at a ridiculously low price.  The crew consisted of Samantha, Robyn, Karen and myself.  Samantha sat up front with me; Robyn an…


Today Finn and Sam put on their new Upward  uniforms. Sam took one look at Finn and said “Finn, do you want to be twin basketball brothers?”  Even though Sam said it with as much sincerity and excitement me had in his little body, Finn respectfully declined.
Instead they danced like ladies and gentlemen danced in days of yore. They looked hilariously awkward.
