Hood #7 has mastered the dive and I caught her mid-flight!!! She wasn’t sure she could swim, but she knew she could dive… well she can do both and I’m thrilled!!!
Caught her mid-flight!!!

And yet another trip to the library – love it!!!

Our book of the week has to be:

We got this from the library, but we need to own it… It is packed with family history…PACKED!!! I am convinced that my father had it as a child… it is packed with funny expressions, limericks and rhymes. The sort of sayings that my father has been saying all my life and other folks look at you like they have never heard it before… It was such a fun read, we all totally loved it!!!
And this is what the hoods got up to:
Hood #1: Is a strict adherent to the law… You may not go out of sight on a hike.

And Lego of course!!!

Hood #2: An ipad parrot…

    Hi Elfi, I am really trying to get my “weeks that were” posts back on track… I guess summer is winding away and we will have to head away from afternoons watching athletic performances at the pool and hopefully there will be a little more time for blogging!!! Hope you have a fantastic day!!!
