This week, we tackled “mommy and me” swim lessons so Finn could get acquainted with the water. His friend, Vivienne (above) bought the class as a gift for us for Finn’s birthday. We had fun, but, boy, it was A LOT of work. The class was Monday through Thursday, four days in a row, and the change in routine and nap time really affected us both.
Finn loves the water, but I think being around all the kids and crying babies, made him a bit cranky each day. He would fuss just about the entire length of the class. The only time he wasn’t fussing was when he got to “jump” off the side of the pool into my arms. (He loves anything that gets his adrenaline going). Thankfully, class is over and we are recovering at home today with a nice restful day in the air conditioning. This heat has been awful!
I’ve been making small changes around my home to prepare for filming and shooting the Creatively Made Home class I’ll be teaching in October. (Including switching out the chandelier in my dining room, which I did today). I’ve been holding on to the chandelier for over a year now, and I love that it finally went up! The class has been the perfect excuse to get Josh motivated to finish some of those “honey-do’s” he’s been putting off. ;)
It’s not easy to keep things clean and tidy, on a daily basis, so it’s been a challenge to have myself AND my home camera ready at the same time. Chasing a toddler around doesn’t make things any easier.
I’ve got some major plans to tackle this weekend for the class, so wish me luck. And while you’re at it, wish me none of these grumpy faces…
lol… is it wrong that I find the unhappy pictures so amusing? ;)
Stay cool this weekend folks!
