…and what a fantastic summer it was.
Technology galore! Adam purchased an Xbox with his own money. Tatum discovered the joy of [supervised] YouTube. My children can work electronic devices better than I can.
Hot, humid days were spent in air conditioned movie theaters or cooling off in the pool. The kids stayed up later than they should and slept later than they should. All of us were lazy at times but no one can say we haven’t earned the right to relax.
The boy child won’t get the joke tomorrow morning with a ridiculously early [by his standards] wake up call. Luckily school starts half an hour later this year– 8:30am– yet he’s still in for quite the shock. He’s certainly not dreading school but he is nowhere near as enthused as his sister. She’s ecstatic. Her school starts Tuesday.
Endless thanks to the water park at the Jewish Community Center. Our family adores the JCC. I don’t think we would have survived the summer without it. Between the diving board, lap lanes, water slides, toddler areas, and Holy Cow Cafe– it’s a delight for people of all ages. We could easily spend all day there. It’s been a joy watching Adam hone his skills on the diving board and swimming to the bottom of the deep end. And Tatum frequently ditched her arm floaties for some serious doggie paddling. Even yours truly did some damage on the water slides.
With infinite love, gratitude, and respect,
