Memorial Day


On Monday we had a Memorial Day get together with our Sunday School Class.  Outside of swimming lessons, this was the first time that the boys have been in the pool all year.  I was a little concerned that it might take them a while to warm up to the water - but they did great.   Both Finn and Sams spent the entire day running as hard as they could and jumping off the diving board. 



For the first several jumps Sam jumped without his float.  I held the noodle out for him and after he jumped into the water he would swim to the noodle.  I was so proud of him.  As the day went on he decided that he wanted his float. 



Finn enjoyed his day because Ethan was there.  Finn loves playing with Ethan. 


The dads spent their pool time playing basketball.  It was complete chaos.  At one point Finn got trampled, but came up unscathed. 

After the pool we went back to Roger and Anna's house for a cook out. 

We got home around 7:30 - the boys were exhausted.  But we all had  really good time.

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.
