So swimming lessons are over. I can't believe two weeks flew by so quickly. Two weeks ago my son walked out into water over his head and couldn't pull himself up. Last night he got pushed into the pool by one of his classmates and was able to get himself to the steps and out of the pool. I was amazed. I really didn't think they were learning that much, but apparently he learned enough to get himself out of a jam and that was my goal, so I am pleased. He is now cleared to move on to level 2 and, crazy as I am, I am considering it. He wouldn't have the same teacher, though, as she starts school next week and he kind of fell in love with her so I don't know how well he would do with someone else. Let's just hope it's a girl. He likes to flirt with the girls.
Just the fact that he is sitting there with half his face in the water is a major accomplishment, but he can also jump into the pool, hold his breath and go under and semi doggie paddle....Way to go, Jacob! I am so proud!
Adam is doing a little better, but he continues to run high fevers in the evenings. He got up to 104 last night, which was scary, but not unusual for him. Neither one of my kids know the meaning of a low temperature. If they get a fever, they get a high fever always. The pediatrician's best guess was that he has roseola and hasn't contracted the rash yet, time will tell I guess. The kids and I were going to go up to the lake today, kind of an end of summer retreat before Jacob heads to school (can you hear my tears hitting the keyboard?) but with Adam being under the weather I thought it was best to wait a few days. The daddy is going out of town tomorrow, just overnight, but he will be gone over 24 hours and that leaves me alone for over 24 hours with a sick kid and a bored kid, loads and loads of fun and joy for me. He has a...ssssshhhhhh..... job interview in Columbus, Ohio. My golden ticket may be arriving soon! I have mixed emotions about that at the moment, only because I have lived here almost seven years and in just the past year have made friends whom I feel I can call up on a moments notice or hang out with on a whim. I am wondering why this couldn't have come up, say, four years ago when I was home alone all day with a screaming toddler with no one to turn too, but hey, you can't always get what you want, am I right? It would be nice to be back up north, but at the same time I dread doing the friend hunt all over again.
Sooooo....anybody been to Columbus?
