Outside my window...
Rosie back stroking at swimming class

I am thinking...
about how busy summertime is. Next weekend we have a reunion on Saturday and a picnic on Sunday and we're supposed to play for two masses - it's just too much sometimes!! And I'm still amazed how certain dates just seem to attract so much activity.

I am thankful for...
the busyness of life. I try to enjoy these times while my kids are still here and still very active. I know they will soon move away and have lives of their own - lives that I hope will still include us somehow just as I always tried to include my mom, but it won't be the same as now and I keep trying to remember that.

From the learning rooms...
Swimming class is over. Congratulations to Noah and Izzy for passing level 6 of the Red Cross Swim Program and to Rosie who is now solidly in level 2
