We got a whole lot accomplished around here today, making it an overall happy day in the household. Not only did we finish wallpapering the pantry doors in the kitchen - after a year of deliberating on choices- but we also did a bit of work on the pool area.
|kind of a bold statement|
Also today Mary learned to swim without any floaties, and Sarah started swimming for real with floaties! Both of these were moves in the right direction. Having a pool, develops a keen sense of how important the ability to swim actually is.
|Hoping by summers end she can do the floaties too!|
We are going to try to knock off small but manageable jobs around the house ( like the pantry doors) for the rest of the summer, because tackling bigger jobs is ALWAYS an issue, having married a carpenter and all. Once work was done we had supper by the pool ( salmon- had to put it back under the broiler as it was way pink in spots- my bad!) and the boys headed out to a dance. Hopefully the kids will sleep well tonight.
Two bad spots in the day- Sophie drank a spot of cough medicine, in which the child proof cap did NOT work properly ( tsk, tsk, triaminic). Luckily there was only a little left. And poor Mary got stung by a bee while stepping out of the pool. Deodorant really does in fact take the sting out ( I hear baking soda too, but haven't tried that one out yet).
Hope you all enjoyed your Summer Saturday as much as we did here!
