I had a garage sale with my friend Kristie. It was a lot of work and I hauled 3 of John's truckloads over there, but I ended up with a few boxes to the ARC, one tote of things I decided to save, and $543. Not bad!
I had the boys with me with the last few hours on Saturday. Andy was "not for sale"
Jay started swimming lessons at the Pre L1 level. He was definitely one of the younger kids in the class, but he did great. He passed his first time through.
Jay also started "Amazing Athletes" where he learns many different sports. He LOVED it and the first week they learned football which was right up his alley. Here are a few "phone pictures"...and Andy (who gets pretty bored sitting in the stroller for 30 min of swim lessons and 45 min of Amazing athletes). I try entertain him, but watching the kids is the most fun for him. He wishes he could be in the water and playing with the kids.
Jay got his first real black eye. (Another phone shot) He was going to the bathroom at a friends and when he pulled down his pants he slipped on the rug and nailed his eye on the toilet. Poor guy (he doesn't really complain much about it and it is so cute when he tells the story of what happened).
Andy learned how to open doors and it is pretty obvious that he knows he is not supposed to be in the bathroom.
Other things: We have had grandparents here quite a bit so that I could get all the garage sale stuff done. I got a bunch of glow sticks really cheap at the end of the season clearance and we spent about $1.25 to have a glow stick party in one of our dark rooms for about an hour one night. The boys have enjoyed finger painting the few times I let them...and then take them right to the tub.
