Sleep or lack thereof has been playing games with the family members in this house lately. Last week it was the kids, this week its been me.
My day started at 4am. I desperately tried getting back to sleep, but after an hour or so I was simply too awake and decided to get up and attack some homework.
James enjoyed the ride and ate his lunch along the way. His favorite thing was to watch all the big rigs in action at the three construction sites we passed.
As James' nap time was quickly approaching he soon asked to get back into the stroller. The morning overcast had fully cleared and as we entered Fairhaven the air heavy and sweet with fragrance.
We got a ride home from Daddy. James nearly fell asleep on the way. He was still napping when Sam got home from school. She was in a very good mood and was thrilled that her National Geographic Kis magazine arrived in the mail.
The afternoon was spent at swim lessons. Sam was thrilled to remember that she had Grandma Lois' swim cap.
Today was the perfect day to be using the cap too as she was leading how to do summersault turns at the edge of the pool. She was worried because "this is hard." I reassured her that they're hard because she had never done them before, but that if she kept trying they'd soon be really fun. This helped and she was all smiles by the end of her lesson.
Due to a late nap, sweets with dinner and the beautiful weather holding-up into the evening, the kids and I headed out to play. We ended up at a "new park," a local private school. The kids had fun exploring all the "new" toys, some of witch Robbie and I also played on when we were little.
