Swimming lessons were survived this summer, we had great, and I mean GREAT instructors, the one in particular that actually got Zachary IN the water is my new hero at the moment. After a year of forcing him to come and watching him sit on the shore, then the year of him not even going, it was so great to have a year where he learned how to swim!! There is more to learn, of course, neither he nor Michael passed their level, but that was not really a surprise, at these levels it takes more than a few weeks of summer to master the skills.
We took a family vacation, thanks to my mom, to Niagra Falls this past May. We were gone for a week, and it was lovely. We stayed by Lake Ontario, and I had no idea how beautiful the Great Lakes are!
Those are just some high lights! I hope to talk about soccer, and babysitting, and teenage drivers, and robotics, and much, much more as the next few days come!

And he loved it! At least, his reaction was totally everything I hoped for, it was better than the Nerf gun! (Which was pretty sweet, too!) So either he has perfected faking it, or he loved it... and since he LOVES Scrabble, is notorious for correcting spelling like his mom, every word perfectly describes him, and a week earlier announced that he wanted to make something with these veryboards (old pallets, cut and sanded just to smooth out), I'm going with he loved it!
Interesting side note, when I asked my husband a few weeks ago for old pallets, he hemmed and hawed about not having very many, etc. Only days later, he mentioned something he could do with pallets, and said, "Oh yeah, and we have a ton of those." Yeah, he regretted that!
So, here you are, one of my homemade gifts this year. I DON'T sew!
And Mom, if you read this, I am still working on your sign... it should be ready for Spring!
