A bit of chaos

We are in one of those times right now where it seems we are running in a million different directions every day, even on the weekends!  Here are a few random events from this week...

We knew our hot water heater was on its last leg, but it reached crisis point this week and we had to get it replaced.  It's one of those things that isn't fun to spend money on, but the alternative isn't very pleasant either!!!

Our neighborhood pool will close for the season after this weekend, so I took the kids there yesterday for one last swim.  Since we have had a week's worth of nights in the 50s, the water is cold.  I suggested to David (rather wickedly, I admit) that he should just jump into the deep end, and he did...Abigail and I had a good laugh!
Here he is as he came out of the water yelling, "MOM!!!!!!!"
 "It's freezing!!!"
 They did a little bit of swimming and a lot of lounging in the sun.
 Cold-water swimming, some books, warm blankets, and company like this makes for good napping!
 Mindy likes to burrow into a pile of clean laundry until she is in a little cave.  She's so cute.
 David got his stitches out on Monday and the scar looks great.  You can hardly see it -- it's the thin purple line along the top of his right eyebrow.
And now we are on to the chaos of today!

Nice catcher upper! The scar looks great and it will probably continue to fade. Cute to see Abigail sleep with a book on her lap-spent many a good nap in that position myself! Mindy is sure in the thick of things, isn't she!?

I love cold water swimming and then getting all warmed up and snuggly after. David's scar has healed great! I will give you anything you want if you send me some nights in the 50's and I'll pay double for days in the 60's or 70's. We are stuck in an endless July.
