What a week!

This whole last week was crazy, but it was the last full week of school for J-man, T-man's last day at Pre-school. Next week we still have 1 1/2 days of school, but then summer can officially begin! I move to my summer work schedule, so I can be home more with the boys. "Home" actually refers to the pool, where we will be spending most, if not all of our days at.
Bad weather be damned, we went to family float night anyway. First we invited friends to join us at the pool for pizza before float night, so we had 13 kids from 6 different families chow down with us and then all of the kids and a few of the parents hopped on floats and got it. I froze my butt off (actually, it's still there - dang) but I got in the pool and played with all of the kids anyway. It was fun, maybe 60F, so cold fun. The water was at least 80ish and I had the hot tub to look forward to afterwards.
T-man is scary how fearless he is in the water. He thinks he can swim, and he sort of can, but not enough to keep up with his brother and that is somewhat problematic. He kept just taking off for the deep end, and I'm not comfortable with him feeling so independent in the water. He also got out and said he was going to do a back dive and starting making the backwards motion of doing it (while the lifeguard was starting to yell at him!) and I had to grab him off the side of the pool while screaming "ARE YOU CRAZY!!!" He can't even do a front dive. Jake the dive coach is going to love this...... I am ready for summer swim lessons to start, it will be so much better when T-man is in the water practicing every day. I'm pretty sure four is too young for dive team....UGH.
Thursday was J-mans 2nd swim meet. Here is the freestyle.

Yes that would be J-man finishing that race first. It was the exhibition heat only so only for time, but it made him feel good to be the first one out of the pool! He also swam backstroke and the 2 relay's, and most of all had a lot of fun. I love the crazy swimmer hair! Goes well with the Pokemon obsession. Is this something that all little boys have to go through? The Pokemon thing that is, Drives me crazy. Wait - I was already there.....


And the sharpie art! That takes DAYS to wash off.

And thank goodness the weather turned out nice for the meet this week.

Somehow we also managed to go on a date Thursday. Ryan Shupe and the Rubberband were in town at the tractor tavern in Ballard, so I HAD to go see them. Mitch was excited about the Ballard part because he wanted to go to Peoples Pub and eat German food (groan). So we ate there (good food, but heavy pub style and don't go there if you are in a hurry - says right on the menu!) and then walked to the Tractor. I thought the live show was fun, Mitch said they reminded him of The Presidents of the United States of America (PUSA). He figured that is why I like them so much. I think he is right. I tend to like bands that are had to put in a genre and this is one of them. I was really excited to hear that they are putting out a new album around Feb 2008! Yeah!

It's been a long week. I stink like chlorine and I need a shower before I go to bed. But first I need to go wake Mitch up and get him off of the couch. I think we are too old for weeknight dates where you go see a band at a bar until after midnight, neither one of us is doing to well on our couple hours of sleep!

If only it was hot over here, we are freezing our butts off on 2 degree temperatures. Lol

Have a wonderful summer.
