We have an above ground pool in our backyard, and Chad and the girls spent the weekend draining, cleaning and refilling it. As of this morning it is finally full, and the girls had two of their best friends over to sleep last night (they are sisters and homeschooled as well). They begged to take the day off of school so that they could swim. Since they are almost done (they are actually completely done with a few subjects) I said yes : ) They are out there as I speak, freezing their hiney's off LOL It is overcast, and the water hasn't had any time to warm up. It usually takes until the middle of June for the water to be warm enough for me to get in. But you know kids, they will suffer to swim, at least mine will LOL The pool is actually a life saver in July and August, when it is so hot and humid down here in Louisiana, the only way you want to go outside is if you are in the water. It helps with boredom and is good exercise.
Oh, and I just realized that I was delusional last night when I was making my list of sewing for the week. This week is ballet recital week, which means rehearsals on Thursday, Friday and the actual recital on Saturday. I have 3 girls in ballet, so that is hair and makeupX3, which will take me a good hour each time. So, any sewing I get done will have to get done by Wednesday and then I probably won't see my sewing machine again until Sunday, if I 'm not too exhausted LOL Throw in my normal duties as the homeschooling mom of 7, and I kind of want to cry! Not really, but it will be a busy week : )
I didn't quite finish my top today, but almost. I only have the zipper and hem left, I should get that done tomorrow.
Dh took 2 of the boys crabbing this morning. They caught 8 dozen blue crabs! I love boiled crabs, in a minute that is what we will be eating : ) YUM!
