July 12, 2010: Goodbyes and Swimming at Last

Today we headed over to Erin's house to say goodbye to the Fargo Cousins. While there, the kids (all 16 of them) put on a Bug Show. We all got free passes good for one person, and we sat in chairs while containers of bugs collected throughout the afternoon were brought to us for observation. There were slugs, ants, roly poly bugs, and earwigs. It was lovely.

Then the kids and I headed home and when we arrived, got in our swimsuits and finally got in the pool out back. The sun was going down so it was a little chilly from the wind, but still just lovely to end the day by cooling our core temperatures! I am pretty sure that we will be required to get in daily at this rate since the kids are relatively proficient at swimming. At least in this deep of a pool. Clara can stand up so it is perfect for her, and Josh was diving for sticks the whole time.

Dave was supposed to take pictures, but he didn't.

I can see that this will be a lot of fun for the next few weeks.

I love that they came up with their own entertainment -- and very creative, at that. I think you all needed to sing "The Ugly Bug Ball" from "Summer Magic" for the occasion. Or are you too young to remember that song? The word verification is PICEN, as in "I'm picen on you!"
