Pool Problems

We had been having quite a bit of trouble trying to keep the water balanced in the pool this year, and after much thought, and much money spent on chemicals that weren't working, we decided to drain our pool (I would not recomend doing this at this point in the year, we did this about a month ag0). While the pool was being refilled we thought it would be fun to swim in it. The boys had a great time being able to go every where in the pool while the water was only a couple of feet deep. Scott and I had fun too.
Here's the boys swimming

I guess I'll play too. I'm guessing that this is the blog version of those silly forward emails with a hundred questions in them. Luckily this game only has 4 questions.

3 Joys in my life: Chocolate, Scott, my kids

3 Fears: Drowning, Falling off a giant cliff (with out a rope), bugs

3 Goals: Finish my triathlon (with out looking like a total goof), plan some Enrichment activities that people will actually come to, don't eat my entire box of mother's day chocolates in one sitting

3 Obsessions:Training for my triathlon, doing these silly puzzles on my DS, trying to watch all the episodes of Top Chef that I've missed this season

This is Michael's first time writing his own name. I was really excited when he called me to show off his work. I knew he could spell his name, but he had never written it before. We bought him a Leapster for Christmas, and then for his birthday we got him the Letter Factory (a good investment for your pre-schooler). He would always type his name in at the beginning of every game. Then when we started practicing writing, I guess he pulled it all together. I think he did a good job... even if his penmanship isn't great yet. An d I think it's cute that his "L" is backwards.


I always think it's funny the way that kids fall asleep doing random stuff. Michael was working on this puzzle while I was doing some work on the computer. After a while I noticed that he wasn't talking anymore (Michael pretty much talks all day long), so I looked over, and he had passed out. I never knew puzzles could be so exhausting.
