With 8 days left of school, the craziness of events has begun. This week: Field Day for Bella, Bike trip for Becca, Fiesta/play for Bella, Farm Day for Bella, Build a Bear Workshop for Bella with Girl Scouts and Wolf Center for Harry. Oh, and I am also facing most of the week as a single parent, as Erick left yesterday for Munich. Fun, fun! Luckily, he will be back to accompany Bella on her farm field trip on Friday. He has been on this field trip for the last four years. First 3 years were with Harry, and last year was Bella's first year. It's become a tradition. Spending the day on a farm is not my ideal day (especially when it starts with a 1 1/2 hour bus ride at 6:45am and ends at 6:00pm). Erick is much better suited to those conditions!
Yesterday, the kids and I spent the day at the pool. It was a gorgeous day! New rule at the club this year: all kids under 12 have to be able to swim 25 yds (length of the pool) by themselves or you have to be within 10 feet of them at all times. Harry passed with flying colors. Bella passed too, but more with stationary colors. She kept bumping into the side of the wall. I was still very proud. I know that having her on the developmental swim team this summer will really help her endurance. She knows all the basic strokes, now she needs to go for distance.
Next week, more craziness and events; including Becca's 8th grade graduation. EXCITING!
