Here's pre-K graduation photos -- it was so hot that day but he was one happy young man and his parents were proud of him:
Then it was time to get serious about swimming, so first we needed a bigger pool. That done, it was now time to learn how to snorkel and swim...oh man, was this ever fun:
We even managed to have brunch out on the deck once we got everything set up...
Silly photos of Clint and his mother!!!
So now it is July 8th and we had a lovely family BBQ on the 4th out at the farm. Pat and Patti hosted and family was invited and asked to bring their own chairs, drinks and a dish to pass if they wanted and trust me, there was tons of food. Patti's brother, Dave, makes his own wine which is great and even had some homemade moonshine. I took a small sip, loved it but would pay the price later as it went thru me faster than I care to recall.
Anyway, I managed to teach Clint how to snorkel (4 lessons and he had this down and we were like pros snorkeling all over the pool),then we got serious are swimming, dog paddling and he mastered that too. Then he decided he liked to swim underwater and dive down for items, so he is now a diver too. He always reminds me to put in his ear plugs, thank goodness. Needless to say, he and I are tanned beyond words this summer.
Currently Kel and family are camping in Bar Harbor so my swim buddy is not here but that's ok, our weather got a tad chilly and that water is friggin cold. Oh and the wind was alot stronger than we realized and it literally lifted our awning and flipped it up and over the deck. So we shall need to replace that sucker...its been good to us since 2006.
Today my sister is due up unless her car is on the fritz. Some interior light is on and we have no idea what that is about so she is stopping at the garage before she leaves the city and heads to the country. It'll be so good to have her here for a few days.
Hope you all are having a grand summer. Mine is going great. My mammogram last month was negative, no cancer. I see my oncologist next week for my check-up but this should be a walk in the park. I do have an eye appointment in August, cataract may need to be removed or some such shit, its an eye surgeon appointment, so we shall see. Colonoscopy will get scheduled for December (supposedly needed another one after three years and its been 3, if this is clean I suspect I'm good for ten). It's not the exam its the damn prep, that shits the bed (pun intended).
Been working out with these 25 minute exercise programs, dropped two pant sizes, getting toned and while the scale doesn't seem to move much, I feel great and folks say I look great, so what the hell, I'm sticking with it!!!
