Today we started piano lessons again (after a summer hiatus). Both kids were so excited to start again (phew!).
After lessons we ran errands, and by the time we got home, everyone was a little short on constructive energy and on patience. I took the kids down to the pool to burn off some steam before dinner. Lately they like to play "mermaid" together when they have the pool to themselves. Here are "Gem" (David) and "Ice Sparkle" (Abigail) swimming out to the 'ocean'.
Unfortunately, "Gem" was in a rather persnickety mood and only wanted to splash and spit at his mer-sister, which resulted in much shrieking and whining, which resulted in more splashing and spitting.
This resulted in a short swim and an early bedtime for two very overtired mer-children!!!
