Almost every day that Adam has off, we go out to his folks' house and swim it up. They are incredibly hospitable and the boys love it there.
Henry & Elliot began their swim lessons yesterday. They have private lessons, 30 minutes a day for 8 days. Parents don't get to stay & watch until the last 5 minutes of class. At that point, Henry was swimming am awesome freestyle stroke and Elliot was crying & d.o.n.e.
Adam & I have an overnight work thing coming up and so Collin will stay with my mom while the big boys stay with Adam's folks. So far, I haven't been able to get C to take a bottle and my mom has been "encouraging" me to get on that! I found this Tommee Teepee cup at target that is supposed to naturally transition from breast to cup-bottle thing.
Elliot hasn't napped in over a week. The kid is tired, I can tell, but you can only lead a horse to water (keep a kid in his bed for an hour), but you can't make him drink (sleep). Upside: they sleep until 7 now!
I love summer. I do miss our regular buds (it's more difficult to get together in the summer and sync schedules/visitors/trips) but I love the family pool times.
