A Taste of Summer

I know everyone must think I'm crazy. We are still living in the snow covered mid-west and dreaming of Summer. We got a taste of the good things to come in just a few months.

The church went to an area athletic club to go swimming. Jacob loved the sprinklers in the toddler pool. I loved the very warm water in the larger swimming pool where we practiced going under the water and throwing diving sticks for the older children. Jacob did wonderful. He swam both with and without his life jacket.

More snow is expected for tomorrow. The good news is that it is also suppose to be above freezing again later in the week. I guess today's break from the snow and cold can hold us over for awhile. I plan to continue to look for ways to beat the winter blues but have hope that winter will be over soon. Of course, I can always stop and get a pool schedule for future trips if we get too much more snow.

Jacob is now in bed and probably already asleep. He didn't even have the energy to fight me about which bed he was sleeping in (his or mine). I think I heard two whines and then nothing but quiet. It is so nice to have him exhausted after a full day of fun.

I hear you!! New England winters are endless, but I have to admit, I'd rather have snow than not if the temperature is going to be this low. That way, we can at least take advantage of the frigid weather through sledding, skiing, etc.

Jacob is growing up so quickly, and he's getting cuter by the second! :-)
